    Wow! I wasn’t aware that they were giving out awards for colors, so does this mean I should be using Turquoise to be with the “IN” crowd? :)

  2. Andrew Keir says:

    It totally does. I didn’t realise but I haven’t been cool since 2002!

    I’m overhauling my logo and blog to replace all the red with Turquoise A.S.A.P.
