    Hate it.

    It makes me think I need to adjust the gamma on my screen.

    How can you have a colour of the year? I understand trends, I get that. But surely every job to its own? How do they come to the conclusion that its a favourite colour?!

    Surely though its just the job that dictates the colour? If thousands of new businesses started up with the word 'Blue' in their name the colour blue would be used to death!

    Personally hate it BUT I have noticed in 5 of my new customers wanting business cards they have all had orange within their design (to differing degrees)

    I quite like it. But then I guess I will. I live in Blackpool so see this colour plastered everywhere. So perhaps I don't like it but I think I do?

    New design hey? Have you not done it through speculative competition, with a £25 Amazon voucher for the winning design? C'mon boss, keep with the times.

    I quite like it. If I can I might try and slip it in my next job. See how it goes down...
