|Zero of these words have anything to do with the color Emerald.|
Needless to say, I haven't felt much like posting anything, although I have had a recipe ready to go since before Thanksgiving. I just haven't wanted to import the pictures. Maybe this weekend. I couldn't even bring myself to do a love/hate post last week because I was in so much pain, it would've just been a hate/hate post, and that's no fun.
So, all I've got today is my take on Pantone's announcement of the color of the year, 2013.
More after the jump...
It's emerald. Emerald freaking green.
My least favorite color of all time.
Just looking at the announcement on their website is making me nauseous.
Pantone has since expanded its color matching system concept to other color-critical industries, including digital technology, fashion, home, plastics, architecture and contract interiors, and paint. Today, the PANTONE Name is known worldwide as the standard language for accurate color communication, from designer to manufacturer to retailer to customer, across a variety of industries. Pantone continues to develop color communication and inspirational tools, and aggressively adopts new digital technology to address the color needs of the creative community everywhere.
So basically, when Pantone decides something is awesome, it affects design across all industries. Expect to see a lot of this horrible color showing up all over tarnation in the coming year, y'all, from Target to Nordstrom to whatever is fancier than Nordstrom.
Just not in my house!
This is not a paid endorsement for Pantone, which is probably obvious since I've made it clear that their choice of color for 2013 is heinous beyond all belief. They'd probably ask for their money back if it was.
