Feeling a bit green

Categories: Silly, Useful/interesting

It's that time of year when Pantone reveal their 'Color [sic] of the Year', and in 2013 we should be looking out for up-and-coming hue PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald, apparently.

Why? Because, according to Pantone's website, the "vivid, verdant green, enhances our sense of well-being … by inspiring insight, as well as promoting balance and harmony."

I'm not that convinced by the whole thing really, but perhaps there is something useful about it, in that it helps folks to stop and think about colours and colour trends; which is a pretty fundamental part of what we deal with as designers.

So, get ready to witness rails of clothing resembling forests, and a glut of references to The Wizard of Oz's Emerald City in the coming year.

Four strings; for the win

The Moselele logo, featuring a ukulele for an 'O'.

A fun little side project, I've recently put together a logo for Moselele – renowned as the second-best ukulele group in all of Moseley (and Billesley). Apparently.

I think I may have found some kind of niche market as this is the second ukulele group I've designed for: see also HUG.

Moselele's new look has plenty of options for playing around with copywriting, which I think has gone down well with the Moseleleians who've already invented a load of new tagline-type things.

They've also been busy applying the new logo to all manner of merchandise in their online shop; I don't think I've ever designed something that's appeared on a lanyard, an iPad sleeve, and a hi-viz vest before, so that's quite something.

(A selection of more serious items such as t-shirts and badges also available.)

Season’s Greetings 2011

There’re many ways of keeping Superwarm this wintertime:

Heating slippers by the fireside; sipping piping-hot glühwein;

Sporting jolly, patterned jumpers; dancing wildly on the spot; 

Having hearty soup for lunch and wearing all the socks you’ve got.

Have the warmest of all winters and the happiest of new years.
