Pantone 807


Soulellis Studios has recently printed up this fall 2008 events poster for Cornell University’s College of Architecture, Art and Planning. Their work for the university is simple gorgeous and inspiring. What interests me the most is how they’ve been using the fluorescent Pantone range for most of the work. Once printed, the colors are spectacular and really bring extra life to the designs. The print in the photo above is using Pantone 807 which is a vibrant purple.

I love it. So much so that I’m going to use one of the colors for a 2009 calendar that I have in the works. So stay tuned for that.        

Pantone Espresso Cups


Since I’m a full blooded Italiano, I drink espresso like there was no tomorrow. I love it in the morning, I love it in the afternoon and I love it after dinner. My wedding favor was a nice espresso machine I imported from Italy with a bag of ground espresso. I love it ok!?

So imagine how excited I was when I saw this awesome set of Pantone espresso cups. Then imagine how pissed I was when I found out that they’re only available in the UK. W2 Products doesn’t ship outside the EU and I can’t seem to find anyone in the US that carried them. F-ing great!
