This years’ Mimosa has almost had it’s 12 months at the number 1 spot and Pantone have announced 15-5519 TCX (Turquoise) as the successor for 2010.
“Turquoise evokes thoughts of soothing, tropical waters and a languorous, effective escape from the everyday troubles of the world”. Apparently.
This is probably a good thing given that it seems the economic crisis isn’t really over and, well, turquoise brings out my eyes. Despite this, I’m still undecided. It’s brash, it’s bright, and within print media it looks ok, good even, but in RGB it tends to just look cheap. Shame really but, hey, I’m sure Pantone know what they’re doing and I look forward to being proved wrong.
