“Blue is fascinating because the vast majority of animals are incapable of making it with pigments,” [Yale ornithologist Rick] Prum says. In fact, of all Earth’s inhabitants with backbones, not one is known to harbor blue pigment. Even some of the most brilliantly blue things in nature — a peacock feather, or a blue eye, for example — don’t contain a single speck of blue pigment. So, how can they […]
Five months ago I lusted over the gorgeous packet they handed out at this year’s design-focused Google I/O, so it was a wonderful surprise to get my hands on it, thanks to Chelle! I could try to photograph it, but you’re better off looking at shots from the designers themselves, San Francisco-based studio Manual. Our concept was to reinterpret the graphic language of Material Design and present it in a reductive […]
I like the colorful stuff. While other people would prefer neutrals or hues that aren’t turned up to 11, and while my favorite color is the safest, most popular one in the world, I don’t discriminate. I welcome the possibilities of each speck in the spectrum. (Although navigating the tints and shades of orange is the trickiest in my experience.) The thing is, while I wanted to delight in the […]

Yes, T-Mobile supposedly owns the rights to the color magenta. I just learned about this from thehappycorp, whose cheery logo also happens to be same hue. COLOURlovers warns against the use of said color in the industry which the company belongs to. It’s telecommunications, and that’s a pretty broad area. The article also quotes exactly which type of magenta is “owned” by T-Mobile and its mother company, Deutsche Telekom. Apparently […]
It started with the color I wanted to paint the walls of my room with. Of course I wanted blue. But something not too blue. I ended up choosing a very icy aquamarine (as noted by the man who did the painting), but continued to be fascinated by the remote regions of cyan. Then I discovered Tiffany Blue and its reputation of all things luxurious and romantic. It is Tiffany […]

HTML is traditionally a means to format a document on the web, as word processors are meant to format documents on print (or on the desktop). Non-traditionally, though, some people come up with ways to “paint” with HTML. Here’s an example:
I spent the whole day today (with teh Corsair) at the official launch of Adobe’s Creative Suite 3, which was held at the Rizal Ballroom of Shangri-la Hotel Makati. I didn’t take notes but here’s the gist of it: oohhs, ahhs, and applause. Seeing the new features in each standalone program was delightful already (especially the impressive little details that gets the job done faster), but CS3 took things to […]
