Daniel Reed: Amalgam

Amalgam is an exploration of grid, colour and texture.The project was initially inspired by Japanese ‘tatami’ matts (The term tatami is derived from the verb tatamu, meaning to fold or pile). I was interested in the way the matts were arranged (1) and decided to make my own versions of the compositions using colour alone (2). I developed this further by blending the colours together to form the abstract compositions seen within the posters. The final step was adding a halftone to the images in order to give them texture and ensure a high quality print finish. (3)

The Deepest Pantone®

Premium gourmet donuts are v dope. I mean, lavender honey with a vanilla bean center; so many carefully considered ingredients. But sometimes simple is the way to go, and there’s no better place than S K’s. Sorry Dunkin Donuts. You were the donut gawd back in my middle school years when all I wore were those deep maroon Adidas track pants. Guys, I fucking hated high school. I went full Steve Jobs on that place. I grew my hair, it was flowy and flawless, and I had this one outfit on LOCK. Long black sleeve t, adidas tracks; mannn. I got the deepest maroon Adidas track pants from the official Adidas originals store in soho. FAM, I stunted so hard on kids in my school. They’d never laid eyes on such a fire Pantone® in their lyfe.

France & Pantone Swatch Tarts


For anyone who doesn’t already know I am a lover of all things French.

While my passion – or obsession, as some of my loved ones may call it – for the culture, landscapes, people – despite the stigma – food and most of all the language grows, so does my natural curiosity to discover aesthetically pleasing images. Queue Emilie Guelpa’s Griottes: where my admiration for food + the french language explode into pages and pages of colourful deliciousness! The place where I further develop my french literacy skills since the whole site is in French, while wiping the drool from my mouth, and the place where you will find thePantone Swatch Tarts among other tasty morsels.

Vous ne me croyez pas? Voir par vous-même.


The tart base is covered with white icing and the pantone color is formed from various fruits, candies, vegetables, and other vibrant foods.

Guelpa said, “I am passionate about food! I find the forms, materials or colors on food are a source of inspiration. It’s fascinating to combine the tastes, and textures that can go from solid to liquid in seconds!”




Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2015: Marsala

According to Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of Pantone Color Institute, “Nurturing and fulfilling, Marsala is a natural fit for the kitchen and dining room - making it ideal for tabletop, small appliances and linens throughout the home.”

We’ve incorporated similar hues in our first winter palette (launch coming soon!), and can’t wait to see how Marsala is translated across the design spectrum.
