Combining the stable and calming aspects of blue with the mystical and spiritual qualities of purple, Blue Iris satisfies the need for reassurance in a complex world, while adding a hint of mystery and excitement.

Blue Iris brings together the dependable aspect of blue, underscored by a strong, soul-searching purple cast. Emotionally, it is anchoring and meditative with a touch of magic.

Blue Iris brings together the impossible aspect of a CMYK-build blue, underscored by a strong, ghost-like purple cast that offsets on the back of every single sheet because the fucking ink never dries. Emotionally, it is anchoring and meditative with a touch of magic - but only after you stop by the pub for five hours after your shift ends.

With all the Pantone branding going on (Credit cards, bikes, bathroom tissue) they don't want to be pigeon holed into just one color. It has to evoke the proper emotion for what you are doing with the branded product.

That evokes emotion... to repress my gag reflex.

Whether envisioned as a tranquil ocean surrounding a tropical island or a protective stone warding off evil spirits, Turquoise is a color that most people respond to positively.


Not me. Makes me want to puke. Wonder what's in line for 2011?
