FUN FACTS: The Ugliest Color in the World Is ….

For us crafters who are drawn to colors, well, I thought this would be a fun piece of information to share. And it's not just some random opinion, rather, research has been used to determined the ugliest color in the world!

See that color right below this paragraph? That, my friends, is Pantone 448 C (also known as Opaque Couché), and it has been determined — by research — to be the ugliest color in the world. So how'd this all come to be? Well as it turns out, research agency GfK was tasked by the Australian Government with finding a color that would make people want to quit smoking. Here it is in all its ugly glory:

This color, along with many others, was shown to more than 1,000 smokers to determine which hue turned them off the most. Once the honorable Pantone 448 C was decided upon, the info was passed on to the Australian government, where they will now include the color — along with standard safety warnings — on every package of cigarettes sold. And this idea is gaining some traction, with other countries across the world adopting similar methods.
