  • Lyrois Purple

    Let me suggest you tweet this:

    Pantone unveils color of the year for 2010: PANTONE 15-5519 Turquoise --

    Turquoise transports us to an exciting, tropical paradise while offering a sense of protection and healing in stressful times.

    Enter LYROIS PURPLE --

    The Lyrois color of the year stays Purple -- I just can't see it pairing nicely with any other color in the spectrum, particularly not with Turquoise...

    Here is why --

    It looks like ice-cream.

    And while I love ice-cream, it kinda takes the royalty from Purple.

    Also, it hurts in the eye.

    Don't you think?

    Besides, explaining over and over that it's neither green, nor blue would be quite a waste of time, and guess what: Lyrois Purple is neither green, nor blue, without explaining.

    In my eyes, it is Purple, which transports us to an exciting, tropical paradise while offering a sense of protection and healing in stressful times.

    See?

    The task will be to avoid Purple overload, in writing and in design.
