An Instagram Artists Is Pairing Food With Pantone Swatches

An Instagram artist is creating Pantone color swatches using food’s natural and cooked-up colors. The Pantone Color Institute is known best for its “Color of the Year” announcement, an annual determination of the shade that most defines our current moment, from food and fashion to branding and design. In 2018, the color of the year became Ultra Violet, a shade that’s “long been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality, and artistic brilliance,” and that “communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.” But the Institute and its many swatches are doing more than just picking the color that will cover our must-have kitchen accessories. Producing colors for iconic companies like Tiffany’s and big screen properties like Minions and Bates Motel proves that Pantone colors are influencing art in its many forms.

Lucy Litman, a digital marketer, is reinforcing Pantone’s artistic influence with her incredible and edible swatches. Using anywhere from two to six different hues, Litman places everyday foods, both processed and unprocessed, onto different colorful squares, creating the perfect food-color match. Known as #PantonePosts, the Instagram art show has produced swatches themed around everything from ice cream bars, rock candy, and macarons to cauliflower, corn cobs, and La Croix cans. Each of the project’s food and color pairings allows her to search for and discover the color variations in things like fish, fruits, eggs, vegetables, and even cookies.

#PantonePosts is a side project for Litman that started through her fascination with Froot Loops‘ unnatural colors and evolved into a tribute to the Earth’s natural, vibrant, and tasty bounty. A lover of photography and food, as well as a frequenter of her local farmer’s market, Litman’s love for food is deeply ingrained. The Californian comes from farming families, where some of her favorite memories were inspired by growing food in the backyard.

“Food has always been what’s inspired me most in my life,” Litman told Civil Eats. “I was always amazed by nature and the idea that a tiny seed could produce such bountiful and vibrant food … the colors and variety of food continue to amaze me.”

San Francisco Design Firm DDW Unveils Design for New Ayesha Curry Cookware Line

SAN FRANCISCO, January 16, 2018 – Ayesha Curry, 28, is the author of The Seasoned Life cookbook, recently opened a new restaurant in San Francisco, International Smoke, launched a meal kit delivery service, Homemade, and stars in her own show on the Food Network, “Ayesha’s Home Kitchen.â€�

Her new cookware line was designed to capture Curry’s effusive personality and her passion for cooking great food with her family — and showing that anyone can do it. The line, now available at retailers nationwide, includes a variety of cookware sets, as well as individual accessories and a wide assortment of pots, cookie sheets, pans and accessories.

“This is an absolute dream come true,� she said of her cookware line in a video posted to her Twitter feed. “I can’t wait for you to see all the products.�

The creative DDW came back with was top notch. I’ve been doing marketing for 30 years, and this was the first time I called an agency back and spoke to the president to tell him how pleased I was with his staff. The DDW team goes above and beyond! I have nothing but praise for them.

Kirk Loveland

Senior Director, Creative Services and Marketing Logistics at Meyer Corp

“The Ayesha Curry consumer is in prime household creation years, often with a young family, and has a design aesthetic that is eclectic, sophisticated, welcoming, and on-trend,� Darrin Johnston, managing director of Meyer U.S., told Homeworld Business when the Meyer-Curry collaboration was announced earlier this year.

DDW was asked to design a packaging system that showcases Ayesha’s sparkling personality and her devotion to cooking, in a way that would set her brand apart from other cookware in a very crowded marketplace.

“Ayesha’s radiant smile and beaming personality were the inspiration for our design work and led to the bright cheery palette. We really wanted to capture her effusive style. And collaborating with the Meyer team was terrific,� said Ross Patrick, Executive Creative Director at DDW.

The result? The sunny optimistic packaging, featuring Polaroid-style photos and candid shots of Ayesha at home and in the kitchen, conveys her love of family, food and fun – the cornerstone of the Ayesha brand personality.

Essex Ed Ready to Hit the Essex Street in Parade on Jan. 28

There are questions even the most inquisitive journalist can’t get answered and information that sources won’t share no matter how hard they are pressed. One such question, “What will Essex Ed the groundhog be dressed as at the upcoming parade?” can only be answered by attending the annual Essex Groundhog Parade in Essex Village on Sunday, Jan. 28, kicking off at 2 p.m.

“People really look forward to the costume being a surprise,” said Amy Cameron, president of the Essex Board of Trade (EBOT), which sponsors the parade and other events in town. “It’s fun for the residents and it’s fun for the organization that is chosen to do it. Even we don’t know what Ed will look like until he or she appears on the actual day. The Essex Ed parade is a wonderful tradition that gets people out of their houses in this cold dreary month.”

Over the years, Essex Ed has been dressed as historical figures, athletes, thespians, and musical performers. Essex Ed towers above residents at more than seven feet tall. On the day of the parade, a secretly chosen non-profit organization and volunteer Ralph Herman transport Ed to Essex Boatworks where the parade steps off. At the route’s end, he is placed at the rotary near Talbot’s.

“He’s big enough to fill the bed of a truck,” said Judy Heiser, a member of EBOT who has been involved with the parade for years. “People wear special hats or costumes. It’s a very lighthearted period of time and people like the idea of it.”

Several local groups will be marching in the parade including representatives from Bikes for Kids and the Valley Regional High School girls’ crew team. There will also be antique cars, fire trucks, and more. Those interested in marching can email the EBOT through its website essexct.com/board-of-trade or its Facebook page.

Parade-goers are encouraged to bring noise-makers and the parade route is often filled with adults and children banging cookware in order to wake Essex Ed from his winter’s nap.

“The community and people from all around come with their pots and pans—it’s this fun, iconic parade that doesn’t happen just anywhere and is just one of the reasons that makes Essex so special,” said Cameron. “The sense of community that it invokes is what people love about it. There are not many towns that will come out and celebrate a giant groundhog.”

Cameron also loved that the parade brings crowds to the village and encourages people to visit the local merchants and to “love their local.” About 100 local businesses are members of EBOT and the dues not only support this parade, but other events in town, the hanging of flags in the summer, and decorating with garland in the winter.

“A lot of the things that happen in town are because of the Board of Trade and its members,” said Cameron. “It’s important for people to know these things happen because of local businesses that care. We care about our town so much that we belong to this organization that creates events that everybody gets to enjoy.”
