Non-color color names

I recently finished reading The Secret Lives of Color, by Kassia St. Clair, a lovely little book of stories, published in 2017, about hues familiar and strange. In the latter category is Isabelline (sometimes called Isabella), said to be the color of the Spanish Infanta Isabella’s white linen underwear after it had been yellowed by age and wear (and – how to put it – bodily excretions); and minium, a bright orange-red used in the Middle Ages. (St. Clair doesn’t say how it got its name: It come...

Crayola Colorcycle initiative offers free recycling for markers used in K-12 classrooms

In the blur of school activity, students read, write, calculate and doodle. With that vision in mind, no company has created a bigger connection with the educational world than Crayola, monarch of colored pencils, crayons and markers. With that title comes a wave of concern regarding toxins and waste. After all, Crayola manufactures 465 million plastic markers alone each year, which begs the question of corporate responsibility. Fortunately, Crayola’s ahead of the curve on this one with the int...

Pantone Selects ‘Living Coral’ as 2019 Color of the Year

Set aside blue and red, which obviously have taken on hopelessly political overtones. Or, for that matter, black and white. Pantone has decided that only the color Living Coral (#16-1546) can rejuvenate us. The company said that its experts have selected the “life-affirming” and “nurturing” shade—sort of a cross between pink and orange—as the 2019 Color of the Year.

Wild Type wants to challenge the stereotypical smartphone aesthetic

In theory, almost all smartphones today have at least 3 things in common. A square shape, a massive screen, and a unibody design that’s almost always aluminum (or any other metal). This wasn’t the case 15 years ago. Smartphones came in much more unconventional forms, from circular, to capsule shaped, to even squarish.The Color series by Wild-Type reimagines those unconventional shapes, and creates dynamic looking concepts that one would definitely consider outrageous in today’s market.

Escape look-alike Ableton Live colors with these free themes

You stare at its interface for hours on end. Why not give your eyes something different to look at? Now Ableton Live 10, too, gets access to custom colors. Judging by looking over people’s shoulders, a lot of Live users simply don’t know that you can hack into Ableton’s custom theme files and modify things. And so we’re all caught in drab uniformity, with the same color theme – both unoriginal and uninspiring. Fortunately, we have Berlin native and leading Ableton Live guru and educator Madel...

Choose Wisely: Your Logo’s Color Could Change How They Perceive You

People perceive power when they see the color black. Researchers once surveyed the stats for 52,000 professional hockey games. They found that teams who wore black jerseys received more penalties for aggression than teams that didn’t. While color doesn’t technically exist (without our eyes to interpret, color would merely be light waves), it has a profound effect upon our minds. It can change how hungry we are, whether we find someone attractive, and it can even make us nauseous. It follows that...

How to Wear Melodramatic Purple

What's fashion without a little drama? First it was Millennial Pink. Then it was Gen-Z Yellow. Now it's Melodramatic Purple's turn in the spotlight. This dramatically-named shade is a lilac purple popularized by Lorde (and named for her album, Melodrama). And it's really no surprise that purple would be the next hue to become popular. Pantone's color of the year was Ultra Violet, after all.
