Culture is moving from homogeneous expressions to an era of overlapping influences, creating a "co-creation culture." As trends move out of focus, consumers are not discarding them as new trends move in. Rather, they are keeping bits, discarding others and redefining them on their own terms. Consumer choices are influencing design and color industries in brand new ways.

The colour of beta


I was wandering through the list at MoMB (The Museum of Modern Betas Most Anticipated) - a sort of highly subjective list gathered from del.icio.us links. I thought I would do a bit of an experiment and see what colors and what tone (dark or light) is the main color of the holding page or site found. The results are rather interesting and ignoring the design of these and just looking at the colors and tone gave me a different look at the sites as a whole.

Color = Emotion


Often we are unaware of the power of color, it's so common we have become desensitized on a conscious level to it. While I was watching 'Natural Born Killers' tonight, it brought home to me how color is really powerful in creating, enhancing and influencing emotions. Many films use color as a cinematic effect, this film though does it in what I personally think is about the peak of color and emotion art.

I've always loved black and white when it's used with one color to create impact. I think it's the photographer in me, might just be the designer. Color is all around us and it often takes it being placed out of context to bang home with real power. I recall somewhere there being a study in food that was colored various 'unnatural' colors. This of course, produced the result that even the most tasty food was seen as disgusting...

Web 2.0 Colour Palette


Web 2.0 is about finding new ways to interact on the internet and collaboration, at least to a certain extent.

Here's a list of Web2.0-friendly colors.

Beta Site is Live


We have taken the old site down in order to hook the new code up to it. Only 2 days left until everything goes live... Yikes!

The site is "beta" launching, meaning we have lots of stuff that will be going online in the next month after the launch. Our goal was to get the site off the old code ASAP so that it actually ran smoothly.

Much love.

A Brief History: Color in Motion Pictures

A Brief History: Color in Motion Pictures


Even before film gained sound, cinematographers were creating in colour. Colour film was in such high demand that filmmakers considered it worthwhile to paint hundreds of thousands of frames with up to six colours. When money was an issue, a single colour tint was applied to an entire film or certain sections to indicate mood. Blue tints indicated night scenes in many westerns, whereas, in films about the Far East, orange tints were used to portray the warm evening light. When Technicolor was finally invented in the 1920's, the process was so expensive directors were often forced to use colour sparingly as a means of creating an underlying meaning. Full Technicolor films dominated only two decades, from the 1930's to the 1950's, when Kodak came out with the much more efficient Eastman Color. Unfortunately, some of the chemicals used caused visible deterioration of the film over time.
