Design: Color Me

In Design, Life

I few weeks ago I was cycling through some colors in Photoshop using the Color Picker, and I was thinking about the different ways in which colors can be expressed and what they might say about themselves.

One of my favorite things about the color black is how, well, black it is. As Nigel from Spinal Tap fame reminds us:

It’s like, how much more black could this be? and the answer is none.

None more black.

Anyway, the hex value for black- 000000 – also indicates its none-more-black-ness, so I thought that having a go at giving hex colors a simple way of expressing themselves might be an amusing exercise.

I have made seven so far- some are more straightforward than others, some have a reference to a product, and some are aimed more at geeks. Let me know if you can determine the references, or at least why the color might express itself in that way in the comments.

And if you have any ideas for future selections, shoot those my way as well.
