I’m delighted to say that our accent colour turquoise is Pantone’s colour of the year for 2010 – apparently it’s ‘an inviting luminous hue’.
There is a wonderful quote at the top of the report – Turquoise Transports Us to an Exciting, Tropical Paradise While Offering a Sense of Protection and Healing in Stressful Times.
Whilst I’m not sure that all those thoughts were running through my mind when I selected this particular shade of turquoise, I do love the sentiment behind them.
In fact, I chose this turquoise as it complements our primary colour of brown, although I can see why it would ‘evoke thoughts of healing, tropical waters’
I would also like to thank a few of our creative clients (you know who you are) as I always check my intuitive thought processes with those who really understand colour and branding.
What do you think of the colour of the year?
What does it invoke for you?
