Yale Blue: What's in a color?

CMYK 100, 75, 8, 40 or Pantone 289 is best known as Yale Blue. The color associated with Yale and her traditions was standardized by the University Printer, John Gambell in 2005 in the third university search for “true Yale Blue.” However, much as Harvard Crimson was almost Harvard Magenta, the tradition of Yale Blue was far from secure well into the early 20th century. The color was only officially adopted as the school’s color in 1894. For fifty years before adopting blue, Yale had been associated with the color green.

YPPS's Michael Ferguson Self-Taught Illustrator

Michael Ferguson first discovered his passion for illustrating in his 20s while working the late-night shift at a printing shop. He explains that his hobby was born out of opportunity. “There was a lot of scrap paper around, and when we produced large jobs I often had a lot of time to kill, so I just started sketching.” He soon realized that sketching came easily and naturally to him and became driven to learn more and further expand his skills. His interest in art gravitated specifically toward fine art, painting, and learning old master techniques.

"Cinema-what?" - the story behind the YPPS 2018 Holiday card

With overloaded email inboxes, it’s difficult to create a message that really grabs the reader’s attention. One way to do this is to add motion–in the form of an animation. Be warned this approach comes with certain challenges. While web pages can contain animated content of many kinds (such as embedded videos), most of these content types do not work in emails. Email messages can contain graphics, but not many graphic formats can be animated. For example a JPEG file, one of the most common formats for graphic content in emails, can not contain animated content.
