The call for our next FEATURED MEMBER is on!
Is it YOUR turn for some exposure?
The SPDG Featured Member program is a promotion in which we display swatches of a member's surface pattern design work throughout our web site in the header along with a credit and link to his/her online portfolio or personal web site. We also dedicate a page on the site to further spotlight him or her, including additional samples of work and an interview.
If you would like us to include your name in our drawing, please reply in the comments section of this blog post by Thursday, December 20th, 2:00 PM Pacific Standard Time. We will select at random from the list of entries and announce the lucky winner later that day on the blog.
In order to qualify for this promotion, you must be a member of SPDG and you need to provide a minimum of 8 different digital images of your surface pattern design work for us to build your feature. If selected, you will be contacted with further information and instructions.
Being the SPDG Featured Member is a wonderful way to gain exposure for you and your work.
Let us help promote you!
Good bye Tangerine Tango, hello Emerald--Pantone's Color of the Year for 2013! In a jump from 2012's energizing red-orange hue to this bold jewel tone, Pantone's 2013 choice reflects a trend towards regrowth, contentment, and a little luxury. Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute® sums it up best on their web site:
"The most abundant hue in nature, the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum. As it has throughout history, multifaceted Emerald continues to sparkle and fascinate. Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today's complex world. This powerful and universally-appealing tone translates easily to both fashion and home interiors."
Although I still have a thing for Tangerine Tango, it might be time for a little more harmony and lushness in my color palettes. What about you? Do you plan to use Emerald in any upcoming designs? What are your thoughts on color trends? Do tell . . .
Stay tuned to the blog for a big announcement about our January meeting . . .
