Pagès on the march.

More Pages in more unexpected places. This time - on a tea label. 

I was in Rennes the other day and ordered tea in the local cafe. The French tea makers, who own the Pagès label, have been in existence since mid-19th century. Their website is here

The tea was nice though pricey and their shade of blue is also attractive. I’ve copied the blue, similar to St Patrick blue, in my color palette. 

If you want to recreate the colour, here’s it’s CMYK reading:


In an open Colors Inspector (viewer), click in the color tab (well) and drag the color to the palette grid at the bottom of the viewer. Use this technique to store colours that you copy of photographs and pictures for future re-use.

Wikipedia has an article on the blue colour, its history and symbolism, including RGB, CMYK and other readings for blue.
