Pantone Fashion Color Report Spring 2014

Post by William »

Pantone has published the Pantone Fashion Color Report Spring 2014. ... &year=2014

There is a web presentation and a pdf.

On the last page of the pdf are CMYK values for the colours in the palette.

In OpenType colour fonts, the palette colours are expressed using RGBA values, where A=255 for opaque colours.

In order to obtain RGB values for the colours, one could either convert from CMYK to RGB using a program such as Serif PagePlus or Serif DrawPlus, or one could enter the name of the colour into the following web page and then search and then make a Print Screen image of the result that is placed onto the clipboard, paste that image into Microsoft Paint, then use the colour picker in Paint on the panel of colour, then use the following in Paint.

Edit Colors...
Define Custom Colors >>

The red, green and blue values are then at the lower right of the panel.

The Pantone Fashion Color Report Spring 2014 and FontCreator 7.5 with its ability to produce colour fonts applied together provide the opportunity to produce colourful fonts in fashion colours.

High quality vector art in fashion colours.

This raises an interesting question.

Imagine a room in an art gallery where there is to be a fashion show.

Suppose that the walls of the room are white and the room is empty at present, with no exhibits.

Suppose that the idea is to decorate the room with large colourful panels on the walls, the panels decorated with designs in fashion colours with the artwork obtained from glyphs in a colour font.

How would that be done?
