This Week in Color

December 8, 2017
With the holidays just around the corner, everything from store windows to streetlights are getting lit up in red and green. This week, even the news seemed particularly colorful. Check out my multicolor week in review:
  • Out of the BlueAfter losing his dog nearly two months ago, our very own Nicho Campos just picked up his furry friend Sky all the way down in Tallahassee, Florida. Showing up out of the (sky) blue, the American pit bull mix was found after a truck driver picked her up in Indiana. The driver made his way to Florida and took her to a shelter so they could find her a home. Luckily, that home she found was back in Nicho’s arms.
  • Blazing Orange – Californians have faced continued devastation this week from wildfires, now consuming over 100,000 acres of land. Many images of the blaze have been shared across social media this week, but one video showed true bravery in the face of this hare-y situation. While people across the state have lost their homes, one man recognized that animals too are losing their homes and stopped at the side of the road to save a rabbit that had been stuck in the burning bushes.
  • Turning Green – A seaside resort in France is taking seafood into the digital age. Local oyster farmers have installed refrigerated vending machines allowing guests to satisfy their oyster cravings around the clock. Some people may love a 3am vending machine oyster, but just the idea is making me turn green…
  • Ultra Violet – Pantone has finally released their color of the year for 2018 named “Ultra Violet.” The company boasts the trending color saying it “suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead and the discoveries beyond where we are now.” I didn’t know one color could do all of that. Regardless, it is time to get out the sunscreen, because 2018 is going to be filled with Ultra Violet.
