Chicago, Illinois (PressExposure) December 15, 2008 -- Lea Brit, Founder and Director of the International Color Centers & Institute (ICC&I) announces the launch of a blog covering the latest in color information and insights into color use in historic events.
Brit states, "Hannah MontanaÂ©, Dali and ENRON did It. Michelle Obama does it. You do too. You use color. Everyone does. But what do the colors you choose really tell others about you?"
International color expert, speaker, writer, consultant, Lea Brit, plus other professionals, present a wide variety of stories and answer readers' questions based on years of research and available color information.
In the [http://www.ColorGossip.com] blog, Hot Topics addresses questions such as, âWhat message does Hannah MontanaâsÂ© pink and violet signature color combination really convey to young people and their parents?â or, âHow does an award winning actressesâ gown tip you off about her movie and her love choices?â and, âWhat does a politicianâs tie telegraph about his policies and ideas?â
GemGramsÂ© covers international history, legend and lore (with a flagship piece on Salvador Dali's jewelry designs and the rubies within them). Lea Brit, a gem and mineral expert, offers a series on the significance of color and gem choices throughout history and in current applications. Brit says,"Salvador Daliâs beautiful ruby-laden pieces have an unheard message for our departing administration -- as pertinent today as it was years ago."
The Blast from the Past section covers the colors within historical events and their real significance. Brit's first entry reveals the disastrous color and image choices made by ENRON. The [http://www.ColorGossip.com] blogâs inaugural posting includes assigned entries deemed too controversial to print in newspapers at the time of their original writing.
"In todayâs freefall economy, the story on ENRON was a warning no one looked at. The colors were there to warn people against trusting ENRON. But like the Emperor with no clothes on, the media didnât want to look at the genuine message in their colors and imagery," says Lea Brit. "We answer most inquires from the media within 24 hours. However please bear in mind that we are teachers, researchers and consultants who work and travel extensively.
