Even colors get political these days; Pantone Corp just named their 2009 color of the year -- Pantone 14-0848 Mimosa.
"CARLSTADT, N.J., Dec. 3, 2008 - Pantone, an X-Rite company (NASDAQ: XRIT), and the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, today announced PANTONE® 14-0848 Mimosa, a warm, engaging yellow, as the color of the year for 2009. In a time of economic uncertainty and political change, optimism is paramount and no other color expresses hope and reassurance more than yellow."
Hmmm…so this shade of yellow is one of our wedding colors. Coincidence?
