Artist Pairs Everyday Objects With Matching Pantone Swatches
Pantone Color Matching System holds color standardization in a vice-like grip. Inka Mathews used the Pantone system to match various random items with their colors. The match-ups are pleasing to the eye, partially because of the tiny objects involved. The other pleasing aspect comes from the well-done composition and the matching colors.
“One morning, when I was looking around to see the plants in my front yard, my attention was captured by these intense bright blue little flowers called Veronica Georgia Blue. A question popped in my head, ‘I wonder what PMS color is that?’” designer Inka Mathews, who started the project over a year ago, said in an online interview “The design-geek in me urged me to pick a bloom and try to find a matching Pantone color for it. It was PMS 2726”.
