It has been 60 years since Queen ElizabethII’s coronation onto the throne in Britain. The Diamond Jubileecelebration is well underway and we are here to share not only the popularity of the monarchy, but the array of colours that have defined the stylish consistency of the Queen over the past 6 decades. Colour was the premise to the collaboration between Pantone and Leo Burnett London as they team up to bring you a limited edition colour guide of the Queen’s coordinated ensembles. The guide is numbered featuring PANTONE Colour references citing the date and location that defines the queen’s choice. So, next time you are selecting the swatches to a stationery system or defining the palette of your next poster, let her Royal Highness, the Queen assist you in the matter.
Colour is powerful and often used with purpose; something that the Queen has learned over the years. We have witnessed some of her most notable moments in her reign through the colour she wore on any particular occasion. The Queen is notorious for wearing monochromatic ensembles that make her appear taller; this shifts the focus to her rather than any distraction that may be caused by a disarray of colours. We are all too familiar with seeing celebrities and their style choices parading the red carpet; the Queen of England will always be dressed in one colour, this alone leaves plenty to talk about. So next time you notice a particular colour, think about the occasion and what Queen Elizabeth was doing when she wore it; we are pretty sure it was important.
The information and visualization is distilled down towards perfection. Plus a “handy” trick to remember it all.
From TEDEd, there is a five finger trick for understanding and remembering the five processes — small population, non-random mating, mutations, gene flow, adaptation — that impact evolution (ie. the changes in the gene pool ofapopulationfrom generationtogeneration). This video, narrated by Paul Andersen and animated by Alan Foreman, is seriously so excellent.
We know that the New York Times are infographics geniuses. They visualize data to track sentiment on a topic, while inviting you to participate in the conversation or even start a new one. Sorting features allow you to find “your people” and compare ideas.
