OK, in addition to being exceptionally well-versed in bitching about the weather, I feel a need to let you know that I’m now exceptionally well-versed in color-trends as well. (And thank you blogger for reminding me to take the extra ‘u’ out of colour.)
Scoff if you will, but Microsoft spends a lot of time paying attention to these things, and the difference between the icons for Internet Explorer 6 and 7 illustrates perfectly the way in which colors are trending toward warmer and more saturated.
You also need to know that pink, not one of my favorite colors, by the way, is another upcoming trend. And so is green, but not pastel; more saturated. I’ll have to take this into consideration.
In the meantime, here’s some ridiculously colorful entertainment for you.
