Rocking the Pantone Roll – When Music Meets Colour

18 Feb


Those in the design world would be pretty familiar with the recognised system for matching colours, predominantly in the world of print. A Paris based creative force “Chic & Artistic” have used the famous system to mix with the musical palette to come up with some simple but statement pieces.


Entitled Panto’N’Roll, the creative team have used swatches in place of wording on classic songs like Brown Sugar and Yellow Submarine.  They are also producing a set of posters, and to quote the creative team….” if you want to be in the loop, please send us an email with the title(s) you like,”

yellow submarine




Which songs would you like to see?  Meanwhile on with the colourful adventure…..

    That is too cute. Pantone is always on the cutting edge.

      It is always amazing how a little swatch of colour can provide so much inspiration! I loved the ones that were done for a French food magazine last year, such fun.( I posted about them early last year I think the magazine was called fricote) 🙂

    All these awesome ideas, BCD. It seems, perhaps, I am only limited by myself… Slightly depressed now.

      Oh no the aim is not to depress! It is just that you are going to come up with an even greater idea- which takes time! 🙂 hope you had a great weekend!

    This is very clever. Amazing how Pantone has worked it’s way into daily life (coffee mugs, cushions etc) from its humble beginning as an aid for colour printing 🙂

    Funny, we are rockers at heart, both with a rock and roll theme today. Love the Purple Rain!
