The thing I love about radio, they are really tuned into the news of the day, as it’s happening. As a colour expert, I never know when I’m going to be called to comment on the colour stories of the day.
So it was no different last Friday morning when I received a call from Jason’s researcher, the lovely Angela asking if I could be on air in an hour to give my insights on some news stories relating to colour…
On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month 1918 marked the signing of the Armistice, signalling the end of World War One.
The first sign of life that rose from the barren battlefields was the red poppy and they has come to symbolise the memory of those who sacrificed their lives.

I was asked a question from one of my Twitter followers, @AngelaClutton “Quick colour Q for you: toffee is toffee colour (obvs) yet some toffee apples have bright red coating. Colour psychology?!?!”
(Day 7 into my 30 blogs in 30 days challenge!)
I was asked a question from one of my Twitter followers @Jilly_Pepper “What is your favourite #colour #color I wonder?”
(Day 4 into my 30 blogs in 30 days challenge!)
When Brent Berlin and Paul Kay introduced basic colour terms in their 1969 book ‘Basic color terms: Their Universality and Evolution’, it was the start of a new way of thinking about colour terms and colour naming.

Brands whose personality projects the qualities of red are outgoing, lively and energetic. They definitely want to get noticed!
If you want to been seen, be noticed, then you can’t go past the colour red. It’s literally shouting for attention ‘look at me!’ Red isn’t a colour for the faint hearted or for the shy, retiring violet. But it will certainly be a colour to bring them out of their shell!
Red has come to symbolise ‘I love you’ and this is nowhere more evident than on Valentine’s Day. Traditionally, it is the man who will give a gift for the one they love, admire… desire. Given red is the colour of masculine energy, it’s no surprise red is the most popular choice of colour.
The Ed Roberts Campus in Berkeley, California is the first structure of its kind in US. A non-profit community centre for the independent living & disabled rights movement. The designer’s brief was to create an “eye-catching, functional ramp structure … while avoiding an “institutional” appearance”.
Last month I featured Pantone’s colour of the year Tangerine Tango and blogged about all things orange. This month it’s Dulux’s turn. Their colour of the year is called Firecracker 4. A hue Dulux describe as a “blushing, lively juicy red”.
