attention designers and color enthusiasts!

I started writing this to tell you about the "Let's Color Project" and then my colorful world started spinning and well....I ended up at Pantone's website and reading their newsletter called "Tones". Color everywhere! And I want you to be as excited as I am!

(My friend Josephine will laugh at this post since when we first became friends the only color I owned was black and I am writing to tell you to be excited about color. hehehe)

So, I got lost in blog land last night and I don't know how I finally arrived at the site but here it is. The coolest project I have scene in a long time! Let's Color Project. Instead of explaining what it the video and click on the site. I can think of a few places in Budapest that could use a little color...give me a paintbrush I am ready to help!!

What did you think??? What color would you paint your town?

Now onto Pantone. Did you know that they have a FREE color newsletter called TONES! Yes I said FREE! AND did you know you can download their Fall 2010 color palette directly into Adobe Illustrator! YES I said !!FREE!! and from Pantone!

While reading through TONES I came across a link to their fashion color report for Fall 2010. What a great resource.

And one last cool an article on The 25 Best Color Apps for iPhone. I just downloaded the free one from you guessed it, Pantone.

I am super excited about all the color - especially the "Let's Color Project". Color is so important! It really does make a difference. In the neighborhood where I live in Budapest, there are tons of large prefab concrete apartment buildings. I hate to say it but they are very ugly. Recently they have started painting them - lime green, red, blue. It is amazing how much better they look! I will take some photos and post soon. There is a lime green one down the street from me that makes me smile whenever I pass it. A coat of paint does a world of difference!
