The ultimate accessory for the designer?
A Pantone visa card*
I wish all of the colors were available – what fun that would be – but they have the range below and (seemingly completely made up) descriptions of what the colors represent:
PANTONE’s Color of the Year for 2011:
PANTONE 18-2120 Honeysuckle Vibrant, Energetic, Captivating
PANTONE 14-0941 Beeswax Warm, Optimistic, Enlightened
PANTONE 16-1452 Firecracker Cheerful, Dynamic, Tuned In
PANTONE 15-3817 Lavender Insightful, Intuitive, Spiritual
PANTONE 18-4039 Regatta Trustworthy, Cool, Confident
*I do not recommend getting a new Visa card just because they are designed well – (pay them all off and only use credit in an emergency). They still made me smile though.
Find them in Pantone world.
Thumbs not guns
This had me totally fascinated – a whole blog where guns in movies are replaced by thumbs up signs:
Go and see them all at Thumbs & Ammo – I just love that someone thought of this and did it. (Two essential elements of any good idea)
Yasunori Nagatsuka, a designer has come up with a combination pushpin (drawing pin) and paper clip – so you can pin documents to the wall. I like it. Simple and quite beautiful.
