There are so many projects that combine photography, graphics and Pantone, and we have already told you about 5.
But what I want to tell you today, through the words of the artist, is Alessio D’Amico‘s project, Cat breeds as Pantone, which talks about a great love, chromatic scale and life’s companions.

Months staring at Sophie, my cat – with whom I have shared a love story for about 13 years – I realized how the mantle of her coat was as complex as perfect; How, according to the light, it would give shades, color, and an immense shine sensation.
I grew up with cats and since I was little I always asked myself the order of things.

Having studied technical design first and graphic design then, I tried to observe the thing with the eyes of a child trying to rebuild things with the resources at his disposal, those chromatic scales.
As a designer, thinking of colors, I could not refer to the great institution that now represents PANTONE.

So I said, “why not imagine a palette with different cat breeds?”

And here is his project, his cats and his Pantone.
