Two Japanese designers have come up with a new and exciting way to teach children about colours. Yusuke Imai and Ayami Moteki created “Nameless Paints”, with their aim being to develop the definition of a colour beyond just a name.
There are so many shades of colours; for example a leaf is not just green or the sky is not just plain blue. Therefore this set of paint tubes is a great way to start expanding colour awareness.
The paint tubes are completely white and have an “equation” on them showing which primary colours, and how much of each, were used to make that specific colour in the tube. So, instead of a child just learning the name of a colour, they learn about the theory and how colours work.
I love this idea as it teaches kids to be more creative and once they understand the theory behind colours; they can experiment by mixing and creating new colours themselves.
The look of the paints and the packaging is really great; I’m sure many adults would love a set of “Nameless Paints” too!
