Pantone announced their color of 2010: 5-5519 Turquoise. Seeing it, I immediately grew nostalgic for a time in computing history when backgrounds were tiled and Netscape ruled the internet. But why was I feeling this wave of nostalgia?
“Turquoise Transports Us to an Exciting, Tropical Paradise While Offering a Sense of Protection and Healing in Stressful Times,” according to Pantone’s website. Well I guess if referencing old browsers and old operating systems is your version of a tropical paradise, then Pantone, job well done.
