…the creative atmosphere of Zona Tortona is dying: strangled by the cold hand of corporatism. The press—the lifeblood of the Milan Fair—are casting their net elsewhere to new, more edgy districts such as Ventura Lambrate. There is less and less to write about in Zona Tortona because many of the dull goods on display can already be seen in showrooms around the world.

I know color blindness affects lots of people, but reading the actual number still surprised me.
Color blindness affects a significant number of people , although exact proportions vary among groups. In Australia, for example, it occurs in about 8 percent of males and only about 0.4 percent of females. Isolated communities with a restricted gene pool sometimes produce high proportions of color blindness, including the less usual types. Examples include rural Finland, Hungary, and some of the Scottish islands. In the United States, about 7% of the male population or about 10.5 million men and 0.4% of the female population either cannot distinguish red from green, or see red and green differently.
If you have ever wondered what is your website look like to your readers with difference types of color deficiency, try this brilliant filter. And next time when you create a new design, perhaps you would consider using colors from this colorblind colorlab.
I ‘ve been giggling at this line for over a week by now, ever since I came back from Danny Bhoy‘s Auckland show. Too funny not to share, so there you go, made into a poster for ya!
It is very exciting to meet you!
We will soon finish moving contents from our old site, and start rolling… xxoo
