Pantone Tarts, Color Swatches You Would Like To Eat

Designs good enough to eat? We think so! How sweet (literally) is this? French food designer Emilie De Griottes has come up with dessert tarts that resemble Pantone color swatches for French culinary magazine Fricote.

Griottes uses everyday foods such as berries, bananas and candies for the respective colors, and marks each tart with the Pantone color represented. An imaginative take on the classic colour chips, perhaps Griottes can make tarts for each swatch?

Take a peek at some her brilliant and colorful creations:



What is “Pantone” anyway?
The PANTONE Color System is a vital tool for designers in the apparel, home furnishings and interior design industries for selecting and specifying color used in the manufacture of textiles and fashion. he System – consisting of 1,925 colors in cotton or paper format – is ideal for assembling creative palettes and conceptual color schemes, and for providing color communication and control in the manufacturing process.
