Pantone Colour of the Year 2014 – Radiant Orchid

Pantone has announced the Colour of the Year 2014 – called Radiant Orchid, a vibrant shade of purple. I must say I like this colour more than last year’s colour of the year Emerald. Here’s the CMYK and RGB values and the closest match to Pantone colour book.

Presenting 10+1 Art Collective

April was a productive time for doing my art and now my focus goes on marketing. I am excited to show you the postcard (and poster) I designed, with input from most of my art marketing group members. Our group exhibit is on for month of June at Raw Canvas in the Yaletown area of Vancouver, BC. Come and join us for the opening reception where all eleven artists will be in attendance on June 11, Thursday from 6:00PM to 8:00 PM. This is a great opportunity for new and seasoned art collectors to purchase original art from emerging local artists. Check out our collective art blog to keep you updated on individual artists and other information in preparation for our June 1 art installation.

Now for my graphic design services. I have been working on some amazing summer promotions for print material which I will be posting on the my recently relaunched website. I decided to add more colour on my banner and now have included a home page. I can now accept payments using Paypal and I am working towards adding that functionality to my website very soon.
I would like to share a book I have been reading called Eat That Frog, 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time, by Brian Tracy. It is an easy to read book. So far I have been enjoy it and applying some of the things I have learned.
