    Yeah, nice huh? I probably would have done it for free if they had asked nicely and respected me. Another relative did hire me and my writing partner to produce a full id campaign and we delivered. When...

    Yup, that's what I would do. It's a bit unbalanced. You can still have the veggies look free form, and ever make more of them on the bottom but it's just unbalanced to me. It doesn't have to be justified,...

    I think eventually every artist finds a style they either prefer or excel at. Unfortunately, in graphic design you are not designing to satisfy your own idea(s) of art and style. Graphic design solves...

  • the search 4 the right khaki pantone color

    Heeeeelllllpppp:

    Guys i really need your help on this one. I need a really cool "khaki" color pantone color for one of my design (graphic tees).

    The Tee I am considering is a tank top and the design has a military type of a feel/look...an eagle, etc but not US colors of course....

    I don't want it 2 dark so maybe a light or medium color please help me.

    thank guys

    Try 4495
    It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

            466 is a camel colour. Or maybe even a milky cup of tea.

            4505 is a medium/light khaki.

              I got the 466 from a thread I read from someone else also looking for a kaki color...the 466 came highly recommeded....I saw it at a t-shirt company and i thought it was rather nice but yes, seeing on the computer and in person can be misrepresentation.

              So, in your personal opinion you still think the 4505 is a much better suit???

              Thank for any assistance.

                You haven't got a pantone book yet? Most of my clients don't need one, but if you are particular about colour, then you need one.

                Using words used to describe colour can be tricky because words can mean different things to different people. I would not call 466 a khaki colour. Khaki and tea are not similar to me. But maybe you would consider them to be similar colours.

                I remember a time when a client had painted their office walls "latte". They couldn't give me a pantone colour but they were happy for me to just pick a "latte" colour. Unfortunately what I call latte was not what they had in mind. Latte to me is a very milky coffee. What they meant by latte was what I would call um...shitakke mushroom. Or the dark gills or underside of a button mushroom.

                  466 isn't really khaki to me?

                  Very camel and not really 'green' enough.

                  449 or 450 would be my idea?

                    And the winning pantone is 14-1014 TPX. I spent all day looking at kaki colors plus I had a man's kaki shirt already in my home so seeing it up front and with my design which i already had a physical sample made-made my decision of not using khaki after rather simple.

                    I am really liking this color. I saw different versions of it on:

                    http://www.chemical-records.co.uk/sc...?Track=RIVERSC

                    Everything from Tees, hats, to sneakers and i was sold. This is exactly what i had in
                    mind. Close 2nd's: 13-0917 - Italian Straw & 13-0815 - Banana Crepe

                    Any thoughts on my colour? Oh by the way budafist I've always liked 4505 that is such a great color.

                      14-1014 TPX? That's not a Pantone I've heard of. I'm guessing pantone for fabric is completely different to pantone for print?
