If we had to brand Industrial Design, what color would it be?
When we think of Landscape Architecture we think of the color GREEN,
When we think of Interior Design we can think of pastel colors, or light blue, then,
what color comes to mind when we think of industrial Design?

Could Industrial Design be PINK?

Can't be a primary, its a combination of too many things. Could be green. Or orange (go Syracuse!)

Interior Design is mauve.

I agree it should be a combination of colors, but at the same time I'd say I can see it navy blue!
This question came up as I was on World Design Summit 2017 website. When we register to get more information, the industrial Design button turns PINK. Interesting to think of our profession in terms of marketing values that the color would communicate.
So what do you say??? Is industrial Design really Pink??

Aluminum or aluminium?

Jokes aside, when I think of aluminum I see natural hard anodized parts.
That dull pale grey color in marketing material on the web or in print would not convey very well how cool industrial design is!

technically speaking.... aluminium .... it was of british origin. probably the only word with an extra 'u' that the brits didnt just add in for colour.
