Did we mention they were free? colourful places & spaces A school in Ljubljana, Slovenia called Kindergarten Kekec proves that turning a space of learning from blah to inspiring only really requires some clever thinking and a big dash of colour. Built in just three days and inspired by the school’s lack of play equipment, Slovenian studio Arhitektura Jure Kotnik used rotating vertical shutters to turn the prefab 1980′s kindergarten into an interactive building. Timber slats can be turned from wood to bright colour (nine hues in total), allowing children to play, learn and engage with their school. I love how this installation constantly changes the appearance of the exterior and allows for both full bursts of colour and small strips of hue. If this had been my kindergarten, I may never have gone home… (spotted on dezeen; photographs via arhitektura jure kotnik and dezeen)

The fact that Lance Wyman isn’t as well known as his counterparts Saul Bass, Paul Rand and Massimo Vignelli is a mystery to me as his body of work is nothing short of breathtaking.

RGB versus CMYK Computer monitors emit color as RGB (red, green, blue) light. Although all colors of the visible spectrum can be produced by merging red, green and blue light, monitors are capable of displaying only a limited gamut (i.e., range) of the visible spectrum. CMYK versus RGB color spectrum Whereas monitors emit light, inked paper absorbs or reflects specific wavelengths. Cyan, magenta and yellow pigments serve as filters, subtracting varying degrees of red, green and blue from white light to produce a selective gamut of spectral colors. Like monitors, printing inks also produce a color gamut that is only a subset of the visible spectrum, although the range is not the same for both.
