Color Trend

Pantone announced PANTONE® 14-0848 Mimosa, a warm, engaging yellow, as the color of the year for 2009. In a time of economic uncertainty and political change, optimism is paramount and no other color expresses hope and reassurance more than yellow.

“The color yellow exemplifies the warmth and nurturing quality of the sun, properties we as humans are naturally drawn to for reassurance,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Mimosa also speaks to enlightenment, as it is a hue that sparks imagination and innovation.”

Here are the Spring colors chosen by top fashion designers. There’s that yellow! Keep an eye out in the next week or so for summer color trends. I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot more yellow.

  1. I refuse to even say the cs words, ever. It’s a crime against mankind (especially graphic designers) to use that font. As the mother to 3 kids with 9 consecutive years of Elementary school Friday folders full of letters, forms, flyers and handouts written exclusively in that font, I’ve considered working to get some kind of measure on the next ballot limiting it’s use.

    Great post!

  3. Ok, I’ll stop using comic sans. Can you help me download free fonts? I like the megalopolis? I went into the site pressed download then it went into my file folders. What would be the next step?

    Rule of thumb… try not to use more than 2 different fonts per page. 3 fonts are okay in certain situations. If you use a serif font like Times Roman for a title, use a sans serif font like Gill Sans as an accent or smaller font. Wild looking funky fonts are okay as titles, but best to stick with simple ones for body text.

    Here is a great resource for fonts:

  6. Yes, thank you for the fonts- and the “color” heads up. I think I’m a little ahead of the game most of my home is painted a “burnt golden” color has been for four years, I was thinking a change was coming…but now not so much now, I have always loved that color.
    Thanks, and I had a total blast yesterday at “faces”
