From Brick Red to Blush, the magic of Crayola crayons lies in their color names. While teaching to children a wide array of color, the utensils also teach us some of our first vocabulary words: I learned what a Flamingo was from a crayon! As we grow up, we can lose the sense of wonder brought on by a fresh box of Crayola crayons; unless we live in Pleasantville, the joy the fact of color often escapes us.

Positioning everyday objects over a solid backdrop of their namesake crayon color, they create minimalist gems that are both elegant and whimsical. Take a look down memory lane...
