271 years before Pantone, an artist mixed and described every color imaginable

Tue, Aug 26, 2014|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , |Comments Off on 271 years before Pantone, an artist mixed and described every color imaginable

From This is Colossal: In 1692 an artist known only as “A. Boogert” sat down to write a book in Dutch about mixing watercolors. Not only would he begin the book with a bit about the use of color in painting, but would go on to explain how to create certain hues and change the tone by adding one, two, or three parts of water. The premise sounds simple enough, but the final product is almost unfathomable in its detail and scope. · Go to 271 years before Pantone, an artist mixed and described every color imaginable →

From Duarte: The power of color can be witnessed in the way we respond to it. Often, we approach choosing color for our environment in the same way we approach choosing a significant other. We are naturally drawn to specific “characteristics” of colors; we form strong bonds; we have definitive dislikes; we even fall in love. · Go to When reinventing your environment, color can make all the difference →

Color psychology in identity and branding

Wed, Jun 27, 2012|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , , , , |Comments Off on Color psychology in identity and branding

From DesignModo: The fascination with the concept of color draws its origins from the Classical Greece time period, when scientist and philosopher Aristotle developed the first known color theory scheme. He was also among the first to compare colors to music, in order to produce definitions for conceptual logic and believed that they were sent from the heavens as rays: “in a sense, light makes potential colors into actual colors”. He identified four colors as corresponding to the basic natural elements: earth, air, water and fire.
