In the entire scope of visible light, there exists a mere 300 nanometers of identifiable color. It is within this microscopic continuum of hues that fifteen designers have learned to develop creative solutions and visually communicate. Though the talents of these individuals may overlap as orange does to red, their character and aesthetics could not be more distinct. They take their own approach to each creative problem, though the objective is the same. This pantone panorama of personalities is a testament to how the teachings of a few can be diversely executed by a spectrum of individuals.
