colors, colors and more colors: a crayola history

The day has ended, I’m sitting on my bed in my hotel room, and what is the only thing I can think about?  The color shirts that people wore today.  Today Faraz wore a shade of orange and Shelia wore a shade of purple – both of which I’m still trying to exactly track down.  Look what I found on my quest though!!  From The Donut Project, Crayola Crayons color history 1903-2010.

Currently, my best guess is that Faraz wore “Atomic Tangerine” (which was renamed “Ultra Yellow” in 1990) and Shelia wore “Fandango” … maybe.  It’s always a challenge….
