    On the fence

    I was super into the colors chosen for the past 2 years, but I'm not so sure about this one. Got to start bringing into some work to figure it out I guess!

    hmmm... not particularly to be honest but fortunately clients aren't as color-geek as I am to check which one is this year's Pantone!

    It's definitely a color I haven't been seeing lately nor is used as much, but I've always had a like for light purples. It doesn't pop out as much, but it's very calming.

    Mehhh. I work in the wedding industry and the last thing I want is an orchid overload, which I am pretty sure this will cause. Plus, I feel like this particular shade will expire at the end of summer because it's hard to work into winter palettes.

    It's okay - I find it too feminine to be the overall color of the year forecast. The interesting thing is they name a color each year and I do see it pop up some, but not as much as one would think when a color has been named the official color of the year.

    I have the 2013 Color of the Year iPhone case (17-5641 Emerald) and I do not think I will be changing it to the 2014 Color of the Year.

    I agree, I found Tangerine Tango so much easier to incorporate into work, I guess that's the challenge for this year!

    It's okay. Purple hues are not my favorite because they can so easily look blue to some people and purple to others.

    Not feeling it. 2012 was the only one I've liked so far

    I did like 2013 emerald !

    It usually takes me about two years to come around to the color of the year. I couldn't help but despising turquoise when it was picked, but it grew on me. We'll see if overly-long-name-for-lavender has the same effect.

    I like the color of 2014, I used this color in 2013 very often for wedding invitation design :D . But personally I really like 2013 color (emerald) or 2010, the color is brighter and elegant.
