Lo que los Oompa Loompas nos pueden enseñar del color:

Me encantó este artículo desde que vi el titular, por lo que me he limitado a mostrarlo en mi blog, a pesar de que el texto se encuentra íntegramente en inglés:

What Oompa Loompas Can Teach Us About Color

Color Palette

Last week, I was working on an identity system’s color palette. I was quite taken with my solution, and the client liked and approved it, but they kept saying how “retro” it was. I didn’t see it.

I hate when that happens, and it happens more than I’d like. I work on something with absolutely no intention of going down a “retro” path, and then someone uses that word. My business partner Noreen Morioka says I live in the bubble. So it must be a bubble in time where I design things that perpetually look like they were done between 1960 and 1970.

Willy Wonka

A couple of days after the “retro” comment, I was watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. And, yes, the client was right. My color palette matched the Wonka palette from 1971. Ahh, but what a palette it is!

Willy Wonka

Someone with a strong knowledge of psychotropic chemicals dreamed up Wonka’s purple velvet blazer, Violet Beauregarde’s deep blue skin, and Veruca Salt’s scarlet baby doll dress.

When you combine this with the chocolate brown river, shiny gold ticket, and pumpkin orange Oompa Loompas, you end up with a remarkable feast of colors that shouldn’t coordinate.

Oompa Loompa

The Oompa Loompas are hypnotic. Their orange skin, not unlike John Forsythe on Dynasty, combined with the avocado green hair and brown striped socks are a masterpiece of tone.

If I had a child, I would force them to be an Oompa Loompa for Halloween. They would complain about the orange skin make-up. But they would photograph wonderfully.
