Being in a creative field such as design, we make it a point of pride to pay attention to small details (like the intricate patterns of our engraved-wood designs, or the tiny radius in the corners of our bamboo inlays — that’s not a result of happy accidents; it’s all on purpose!)
Another thing we can be rather picky about is specific shades of colour – how to name the various washi patterns we have is always fun. I had seen this a while back and meant to blog about it, and then noticed that Drawn! mentioned it today — this is a fun little test to see just how well you can discern varying hues. Good fun for all you visual-types :)
It doesn’t take that long to do, and in case you’re wondering here’s Vivian’s result:
The lower the score the better, so not too shabby. So you can see why we make it a point of contention to identify ‘vermillion’ versus ‘rust’!
