color career counselor

By color, thought provoking13 Comments

Found this amazing quiz over at How About Orange today. It is utter witchcraft, I tell you. You pick the colors you like (and don’t like), and it tells you what career you should have. And it works! So much so that it completely picked up on my inner Aries/Taurus chaos by suggesting that I am first a Creator and second an Organizer. (Hello Right Brain? Meet Left Brain. Now be friends.) What should you be when you grow up? Take the test and let me know! PS. It doesn’t appear to like Safari, but Firefox worked great. (Thanks Jessica!)

cutout billboard

By advertising, clever, color4 Comments

Amazing billboard created by Leo Burnett for Koleston Naturals hair color. Strategically placed against a beautiful (and natural) sea/sky backdrop, the die-cut hair changes color throughout the day. Brilliant. It would be fun to think of other settings that would provide unique results for a campaign like this. Like against a giant, healthy Sugar Maple that dramatically changes colors throughout the year. What else? (Thanks Keith.)

I’m obsessing over these paintings by Sharon Dowell. Love the colors. Love the layers. Love the perspective. Love. And she’s from Charlotte! Rad. See more of her stuff here. (Thanks Susan!)
