It was only a matter of time until I shared a great idea from the site that may have served as inspiration for ArtsHacker, and that day has arrived.

Do you organize by color coding? In this post on Lifehacker from December 3rd, Whitson Gordon found a chart of 22 colors by Kenneth Kelly that are easy to tell apart. Besides being a possible productivity hack, I’m thinking this is handy tool for a task like choosing colors for venue seating charts.

Bonus: look at this comment on the Lifehacker post for RGB values!

About Phil Paschke

Philip has had a fascination with all things tech ever since his parents brought home a Commodore 64 and he learned to type Load “*”,8,1. Combining his love of gadgets with a passion for music, he completed a B.Mus in Theory and Composition, while working part-time at the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra & Winspear Centre box office. After thirteen years with the organization progressing through titles like New Media Specialist and Communications Manager, he recently relocated to Wagga Wagga, Australia (really) for a down-under adventure. Whichever hemisphere he's in, Philip makes time for fine food, peaty scotch, and staying up way too late playing Sim City.
