today: red

a little historical background.

‘The word red comes from the Old English rēad. Further back, the word can be traced to the Proto-Germanic rauthaz and the Proto-Indo European root reudh-. This is the only color word which has been traced to an Indo-European root.In Sanskrit, the word rudra means red. In the English language, the word red is associated with the color of blood, certain flowers (e.g. roses), and ripe fruits (e.g. apples, cherries). Fire is also strongly connected, as is the sun and the sky at sunset. Healthy light skinned people are sometimes said to have a “ruddy” complexion (as opposed to appearing pale). After the rise of socialism in the mid-19th century, red was to describe revolutionary movements. The word is also obviously associated with anything of the color occupying the lower end of the visible light spectrum, such as red hair or red soil.’ – wikipedia

there are many symbolisms of red but to me red is the epitome of independence. red has always been able to stand on its own. it’s bold and fierce. it’s the colour to emulate. it has given me so much inspiration over the years, in both my designing as well as my photography.

here are some examples of red in everyday life that makes me smile.
