More color of the year and …

I wrote about Pantone’s color of the year in one of last week’s posts. Below is a quote from the person responsible for these colors. I’ve highlighted the portion that most interested me. So, the color of the year seems to be not a fashion statement or forecast, but a representation of our thinking or feeling.

Will orange become ubiquitous? Probably not, Ms. Eiseman said. “What we’re trying to do is get the feeling of the zeitgeist, to use an overused word,” she said, speaking by phone from her home on Bainbridge Island in Washington. “What are people talking about they feel they need, that color can help to answer?For us, the color of the year is not the hot fashion color, but an expression of a mood, an attitude, on the part of the consumers.”

And then there’s this headline, also from the NYTimes. Obviously I couldn’t post the photo, being xxxxx and all. It’s from the time when London was an outpost for the Romans. And, obviously, since it’s xxxxx, I can’t post a picture! Check it out by clicking on the headline. You’ll like it. Instead, click here. Never mind, I can’t give you the link, even though it comes from the NYTimes. Facebook won’t allow me to post the link to my blog post because “The content you’re trying to share includes a link that’s been blocked for being spammy or unsafe…” I have removed all links, but still am not allowed to post on Facebook. Hmmm….
