A new approach to color selection

14 Jul - Tempo de leitura 3 min

The new Keaykolour and Curious Metallics tool is a true celebration of color. We chose to honor these two ranges with a double box that features the complementary colors and finishes of these two iconic collections.

Defining color patterns on creative papers

As part of our close collaboration with color expert Atelier 3D Couleur in 2018, we have completely revamped our color papers collection to create a comprehensive, contemporary and coherent color offering. The color palettes of each paper strip have been meticulously selected to provide maximum matching and harmony within and between the strips, expanding opportunities to match different papers in printing and packaging applications.

The two gamuts are built in color families making it easy to combine colors – bright, deep, pastels or shades of blues, reds, greens… Each color can work on its own, but it can also be easily associated with other colors in your family of colors – in pairs or groupings – or, ultimately, all the colors in the gamut mixed together, creating infinite combinations.

The new tool, designed by our long-time partner North, takes the form of a dual box set and highlights matching color pairs from the two ranges, as well as the complementarity of the two color palettes, demonstrating our mastery of color creation, development and correspondence. A smart cut design reveals the beautiful bulk-dyed edges of each sheet and allows customers to change the top sheet to view different color combinations.

A highlight on two iconic complementary tracks

Keaykolour  is a collection of natural, textured, high-rigidity papers and boards in 48 sophisticated midtone colors, organized into nine chromatically harmonized color families. It also includes a choice of 100% recycled products as well as a range of 13 stamping patterns.

The Curious Metallics collection brings a shimmering glow to eight coherent families of soft, natural tones, along with a small number of more resonant contemporary colors, on a wide variety of papers and boards.

The 48 colors of Keaykolour combined with the 30 colors of Curious Metallics create a harmonious palette of nearly 80 colors that reveals the power of creative combinations between the refined, natural texture of Keaykolour and the ever-so-subtle shine of Curious Metallics.
