Steeped in the grayness of a Seattle winter, it’s easy to think the world is flat. Sameness invades. Gray sky, gray pavement. A muted, wet, misty, woolen blanket of gray covers the world. I walk most days to take a break, breath some air, clear my head, run some errands, and I am numbed by the monotony of grayness.
In all that drab, it’s a delight for color to leap to attention, grabbing my eye, pulling me towards it. And really, isn’t that what color does in design? Pulls our attention where we want people to follow.
