RGB: future classic

Acid neon and neutral colors will be completely out by the middle of next year (in the States – it’s on it’s way out in most other countries) and primary colors will make a comeback. What will be unusual about this trend is that it won’t just be in ephemera like fashion and graphic design, but will stretch into lasting monuments like logo design and architecture – everywhere. Actually I think primary colors are already back are in the more pioneering parts of the planet. I read a piece in a random Domino at the gym a couple of months ago showing residential and office buildings created by cutting-edge architects in Asia, some exteriors of which were covered entirely in bright primary colors. Wouldn’t a shiny red or blue building be much more exciting than brown or steel gray?
