A week ago, my friend Simon Balsom and I were talking about colors. I was griping about all these products coming out, marketed as being revolutionary and cutting edge. So I said that what would really blow me away is if someone discovered a new color.
Two days ago, Simon called me and said that he found a new color. I was skeptical but my interest was piqued. So he told me this story:
At work, a man came through to Simon’s first floor office on a little tour of the premises. He then went back downstairs. A little later he returned upstairs to Simon’s office and stood in front of this picture which is hanging near his desk, and said, “There are a million works of art in the world, but when I saw this I saw something different. It was like seeing art for the same time. It was like someone has created a new color.”
