What is a PPT File ?

I have been doing some video editing and was adding from Adobe Premiere templates for effects. I had not noticed this before, but an Adobe “Premiere Pro Template” file is also labelled “PPT”! PPT of course being a PowerPoint file in my world. Ironically, this is also becoming an outdated term as it refers to the now legacy file format .ppt (now .pptx).

Pantone 2023 Color of the Year – Viva Magenta

For 2023, Pantone’s Color of the Year is #18-1750 – Viva Magenta.

I like it. It is…

While reading about the color of the year, I learned something I have never read about before – how Pantone picks the color of the year. Overall, as a graphic designer, this was a great read. The key takeaways (for me):

  • Pantone Color of the Year started in 1999.
  • Each year Pantone has a global team of color experts that are not all Pantone employees.
  • Colors are recommendations based on anything and everything that influences color; entertainment, travel, lifestyles, etc. and a study of trends, but not a timely fad (note: the color may not be a fad, but the tagline, “welcome to the Magentaverse”, definitely is!).
  • The process is generally identify, and agree, on a color. Then continue the process to determine the shade of that color.
  • And it is a global design thing, so I like it 😊
