    Pantone Box of Colour: For Kids!

    This set of books was gifted to my son for his first birthday – from a very special fellow graphic designer friend of ours.

    How could I not post about this?! Pantone are trying to start them early, hey!

    In all seriousness: I actually adore this set of books. They are chunky board books with cut-out shapes, giving them a bit of dimension (and easy to grasp). Each book is themed to a colour, with heaps of simple images for small kids to recognise. And of course, each page has the Pantone number on it – I giggle so much at this, you will always be able to find a Pantone colour, even in a kids book!

    These books sit in our studio for our kids to play with while they’re visiting. They love the books, I get asked for them most times they come in. They don’t know what Pantone means to design yet, but they will learn soon enough!
