OK, I know it’s only January 1, but is anybody else as sick and tired of the Color Of The Year DRAMA? Everywhere I turn, someone is joyfully sharing the new’s of Emerald’s replacement- as if this a) is news or b) might be worthy of a Pulitzer Prize. I mean really… what does Pantone think we are going to do with Radiant Orchid for a year… are we to advise our trusting design clients to redo everything in this pepto derivative? Let’s peer into the crystal ball to see how it could reshape our year… IF… it were to take off and transform the world. Just humor me for a second:
Safe to say: NEVER.
Don’t get any ideas, Nabisco..Please no more food dyes…
When pigs fly.
|“While the 2013 color of the year, PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald, served as a symbol of growth, renewal and prosperity, Radiant Orchid reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “An invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society.”“An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”|
