Color is in the eye of the beholder!

Indeed! How do you see color? The past couple weeks I have discovered that some people see letters or numbers and even associate taste and smella neurological condition called synesthesia. While others relate musical scores.

But who says what is lime green vs. apple green? Well-known Pantone is an excellent attempt to level the playing field.  I am always thumbing through my Pantone books trying to find that right color. But even using industry standards depends on our own color acuity.

There is a color test making the rounds right now.  You've maybe seen it already.  The test was created by our friends at Pantone. When I worked at Nordstrom we had to take a similar color test.  I couldn't remember my score so I took the Pantone test.  I scored a 7.  A decent score.  Good thing given my profession!

What did you score?
