We love color, but every once in a while, we find one that really just rubs us the wrong way. Pantone 176 C: the worst of the most popular colors out there. Walk into any store with an aisle devoted to little girls (especially toys) and the entire thing is pretty much guaranteed to be covered in the ugliest, chalkiest version of baby pink. At DFM, we're all women and we know a thing or two about marketing, so we get it. We know it sells. But we're also a bunch of women who spent our childhoods playing on the boys team for as long as they would let us, climbing trees (while skinning our knees), and building lego castles instead of planning our barbie wedding - even then we laughed in the face of baby pink and insisted we were allergic to it just to avoid the color altogether. Know what else is this exact color? Pepto Bismol. Coincidence? We think not.
