This week’s Articulate challenge is to use marsala – Pantone’s 2015 color of the year – as the primary color in a template or interaction. (Is it my fault that was the only guidance we got?)
First, marsala just looks like lipstick to me. I don’t get “cocoa” or “wine” or anything else from it. So I googled lipstick history to see if I could find something to play with.
That’s when I discovered that at least one prominent gentleman in our nation’s history used to wear it. Naturally I wondered what he’d look like in marsala, and the rest is – of course – history.
In addition to marsala I used three colors inspired by the Pantone color pairings David Anderson supplied, but I made up new names for them. “Cherry tree” is my favorite, but I’m equally proud of “venison” and “war”.
I hope you like it. This may be my favorite challenge entry so far. I’m also pretty happy that I have an interaction ready to go for Presidents Day!
