Color Me Bad, Crayola Eliminates a Color — Automakers Take Notice

Stephan Franklin, Auto Show Global

Word on the street is that Crayola the crayon manufacturer is eliminating a color from its 24 color pack line. While I’m sure that this is causing some anxiety somewhere, I wish the automotive companies would take a cue. I have some recommendations of my own of colors that need to get the axe:

  • Only five shades of Silver please
  • No Green of any shade, particularly Lime Green
  • Mauve, enough said
  • Anything that is a shade of sorbet
  • Flesh tones
  • Robin Egg Blue
  • 1960’s household appliance colors
  • Split Pea Soup
