fresh colors and patterns

For the ABUS HUD-Y’s CMF design (color-material-finish), we kept the color and graphic palette quite simple and functional to stay in line with the minimalist essence of the product. A reduced amount of color variations allowed us to propose elegant and vibrant CMF combinations in a clear and manageable product range.
