The Color Of. . .


I recently discovered the site The Color Of via Sweet Tidings and had to share. The site's purpose is to answer what the color of something is an objective way. You just type in a word and The Color Of will pull images from Flickr and layer them into a textured color. Check it out and tell me what you think.

Lol - whatever word I enter in Finnish, the result is a bland grey. That might actually tell something about our mentality :-P

This is an amazing thing! So inspirational for finding good colour patterns and artistic expressions. I'll be making good use of this site. Thanks very much for the link!

It's a cool idea, but according to the site, the colour of nearly everything I tried is peachy-pink :)

Dear Anonymous,

Try a Finnish word. Viirianinen says she keeps getting grey with every Finnish word she tries.

I had so fun with this when I typed in my blog name, which I then included in a blog post... Which is why I have come over, to thank you for the inspiration. Have a wonderful weekend!

That is a very cool website. It's like a kaleidoscope until it all comes together.

I'm not sure if it's just me being silly, but the pictures only link to themselves - they don't send me to the thecolorof.com website. That said, it's a pretty cool idea, but most things will inevitably turn out gray!

In fact, it almost all turns out pinkish gray.. still fun though!
