Tiny PMS Match

Tiny PMS Match

A personal project of tiny proportion—matching small everyday objects to their Pantone® color equivalences, by designer Inka Mathew. All pictures were taken with her iPhone 5 and edited with Snapseed.

Hi, fist of all I love you work, it's lovely and inspiring. But if I could add a simple idea...about the Pantone Cool Gray 8 gun piece: what if in the objects with 2 well separate colors like the gun you put two pantone colors one in each color side by side, would be a nice visual effect. All love and keep the fantastic work!

Thank you! Good question. I only choose 1 color to match because I’d like to keep them all uniform and minimalist. If I put 2 chips, the square becomes filled and the object competes too much with the Pantone chips.

Pantone 101 color match. Texas Dandelion. Apparently, you can eat the whole plant and it’s good for you.

Pantone 621 color match. Half shell of a Blue Jay’s egg. I found it during my morning walk with my family 2 days ago. It reminded me of the empty tomb and my Savior who was risen. Happy Easter to you all!

Pantone Purple color match. Prairie Larkspur flowers I found around the neighborhood. I thought they’re hot pink, but apparently it’s purple according to Pantone.

Pantone 220 color match. Red Drummond Phlox. It’s one of the various Texas wild flowers that are growing here in my neighborhood. 
Today I was floored by the love I’ve been receiving for Tiny PMS Match. Big thanks to Design Sponge (designsponge.com) who featured my little project on their blog today.

Pantone 393 color match. Tiny plastic duckies. My spunky little girl turned 4 two days ago. She’s such a joy to have in my life. Trying to capture and remember all the cuteness while they last.

Pantone 362 color match. A tiny T-Rex. From a curiosity toy store in Sausalito I went to last month, during my vacation in northern California. Happy Friday, y’all!

Pantone 5773 color match. Witches’ Hair Lichen. Pretty obvious reason for the name. They grew on the giant Redwood trees at the Redwood National Park I went to visit last month. Lots of them.
