Layout | Crayola colour timeline
Lovely looking graph showing the evolution of Crayola crayon colours from 1903 to 2010. It is also interesting to see the evolution of this graph from a simple linear square, to a rainbow.
The rainbow is visually more appealing, as well as being clever with the colour allergy between the crayon’s and the rainbow. The curved shape allows for easier viewing of the more recent colours, and also gives the impression of crayons layed out in a fan, with the inner trapezoidal shape mimicking a sharpened crayon head.
