Why Is Facebook Blue? The Science Behind Colors In Marketing
Editor's Note: This is one of the most-read leadership articles of 2013. Click here to see the full list. Why is Facebook blue? Not highly scientific, right? So how do colors really affect us, and what is the science of colors in marketing, really? First: Can you recognize the online brands just based on color? Before we dive into the research, here are some awesome experiments that show you how powerful color alone really is. Example 1 (easy): Example 2 (easy): Example 3 (medium): Example 4 (hard): These awesome examples from YouTube designer Marc Hemeon, I think, show the real power of color more than any study could. How many were you able to guess? Which colors trigger which feeling for us? Being completely conscious about what color triggers us to think in which way isn’t always obvious. Black: Green: Blue: Clearly, every one of these companies is seeking to trigger a very specific emotion: When we feel compelled to buy something, color can play a major role.

Comercio Justo » Fair Trade — Brooklyn Metal Works Ruudt Peters Art Jewellery Historia del vestuario: Inaugurar Nada más bello que el vestuario de las películas del canal TCM, donde aparece una joven Sophia Loren en el antiguo Egipto o una perfecta Tippi Hedren dirigida por Hitchcock. Vestuario complejo, lleno de detalles, que nos deja imaginando la realidad del revestimiento de otras épocas: ¿Qué contextos habrán generado que sean esas las formas y no otras?. Con esta interrogante decidimos inaugurar este recorrido – “viaje” basado en una observación retrospectiva a través de la Historia del Vestuario, para identificar así el origen y la data de muchos de los estilos – aspectos que hoy nos revisten, revisando nombres, materiales, cortes, tallas y texturas. Comencemos el trayecto: Hay tres fundamentos generales, que “hacen ser” al revestimiento humano. a. b. c. La necesidad como origen del primer vestario: En las zonas menos gélidas, el taparrabo fue el revestimiento común: los hombres la pasaban por entre sus piernas y la ataban a la cintura.

Walking the Gray Area Footnotes of a Stead Valeria Vallarta Siemelink So what we are really doing when we walk through the city is thinking, and thinking in such a way that our thoughts compose a journey, and this journey is no more or less than the steps we have taken, so that, in the end, we might safely say that we have been in a journey, and even if we do not leave our room, it has been journey, and we might safely say that we have been somewhere, even if we don’t know where it is. Paul Auster The work of Estela Saez has repeatedly turned to the intermingling, even reciprocity, between identity-construction and physical space (land-home-shelter) and its contingent shaping of memory and time. Former collections of the Spanish jewellery artist bearing titles such as Terra, Goodbye Nest and Recovered Connections, document her preoccupation with reconciling mobility and belonging and alternate conceptual and material references to earth and sky, tradition and modernity, permanence and ephemerality.

On Curating Unexpected Pleasures-The Art and Design of Contemporary Jewellery: Susan Cohn in conversation | Art Jewelry Forum Design Museum, London, England December 5, 2012 – March 3, 2013 National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia April 20 – August 26, 2012 Susan Cohn has a longstanding career working across the art-craft-design divide. Ben Lignel: What did you learn during this experience? Susan Cohn: The first “lesson” I learned from the project is that really not many people in the world know about contemporary jewelry. The second and probably most important thing I got out of this project is an overview of the field. How did you select the work for the show? Susan Cohn: I really wanted a democratic form of application process. I received a total of 553 submissions, featuring roughly 2500 pieces, and did a first selection of the work based on the following criteria. During this first phase, I would put potential themes next to each submission. Obviously, during this second stage, I was accountable both to the field at large and to the exhibition and how it made sense as a show. London was different.

Quinta trends: VeraVivanco: joyas que nacen del arte Las pasiones son difíciles de contener. Por mucho que las disfracemos de pasatiempos, siempre terminan poseyendo parte de lo que somos. Algo así le pasó al historiador del arte y restaurador Sebastián Vera Vivanco. La propuesta de Vera Vivanco “Mis joyas buscan ser protagonistas del look, entregando color y formas atractivas. Los factores que influyen en el desarrollo de colecciones de Vera Vivanco “Influye lo que esté estudiando o investigando en el momento. Ahora estoy trabajando en otra línea que se llama Up, y está inspirada en la película del mismo nombre. Por último mi formación profesional es la historia del arte y la restauración, por lo mismo el mundo del arte es lo que me nutre y me mueve al momento de crear”.
