Pantone’s trending colour 2015: Marsala

trendcolor marsala

It’s like a colourful ground hog day: every year, the experts at Pantone choose a colour to enter the limelight for the next 12 months to come. Fashion conscious folks around the globe set great store by their opinion, so it comes as no surprise that the colour of the year 2015 has caused quite a stir among trendy aficionados already. The name of this year’s colour is as exotic as its origin – marsala. The name is derived from a dark and strong Sicilian liqueur wine that stems from the ancient town of Marsala, and you only need to imagine a cracked open pomegranate to picture its lush texture.

New Year’s Resolution: How Long Can You Last?

New Years Resolution

New Year’s resolutions aren’t for the faint of heart. They’re serious, serious commitments you resolve to live up to, no matter the cost, for 15 minutes or so. Here are a few resolutions you just may want to commit to for a little longer than that:

Get in Shape

Ha ha, yeah, we know, “round is a shape”… We’ve all heard that one once or twice. But seriously though, it’s probably time to get yourself to the gym. Don’t want to commit to the contract at the local sweat shop? Some push-ups, sit-ups and cardio in your living room are a good place to start.

Average drop-out rate for the “Get in Shape” resolution: 3 weeks

No More Baggage

We all carry around a ton of stuff. I’m not talking like, “that guy has a lot of baggage”, I’m talking cell phones, laptops, tablets, your lunch, your wallet or purse, etc. Let’s resolve to consolidate. Putting everything in one bag is a great way to keep your hands free for more important stuff (like coffee).

Average drop-out rate for “No More Baggage” resolution: 2.5 months

New Years Resolution

Be Seen Offline

Each one of us is a victim to the screen. Whether it’s your TV, your phone, your tablet or your laptop, we all spend a little too much time face-to-screen instead of face-to-face. Let’s resolve to be seen offline for a bit. Put down our devices a few times a day to sit and chat with a friend (NOT on Skype, you guys!).

Average drop-out time for “Be Seen Offline” resolution: 8 minutes

Hop on the Wagon

One the holiday season has come and gone, it’s usually a popular resolution to dry out the ol’ liver. After all the eggnog, the warm spiced wine and “Christmas cheer”, it’s a good idea. Couple this with getting in shape and you’re well on your way to a healthy 2015!

Average drop-out time for “Hop on the Wagon” resolution: Is it 5:00 yet?

What was your New Year’s resolution this year? How long do you plan to keep it going and how long do you think you’ll really last? Leave us a comment or email our bloggers at blog@spreadshirt. Happy New Year, everyone!

Spreadshirt presents: cool designs that rock, Elvis style!

Spreadshirt Elvis Tribute

Rock ‘n‘ Roll isn’t just a music trend from the 1950s and 60s. The term itself has become the epitome of a way of life. Some may say “he was just a guy with a quiff wearing a leather jacket”, but you’d only need to watch a single clip of any of Elvis Presley’s songs to understand why he was called The King. His iconic voice and smart looks have never lost its appeal. Right in time for his birthday – January the 8th – Spreadshirt presents rocking designs to make the king proud.

Maddinicious: The quiff that Elvis used to wear in the late 50s had an impact on a whole generation of men. And for anyone associated with rock ‘n‘ roll culture, it is still an indispensable symbol of belonging to this scene. In Maddinicious‘ shop you can find designs combining smart designs with deft slogans such as “Rock Me” and “Rock ´n´ Roll Baby“ on mugs, T-shirts and hoodies. continue reading ‘Spreadshirt presents: cool designs that rock, Elvis style!’

Hackers at Spreadshirt? Sabotage? Scandals? Not really, just a common scenario with our digital super brains. Here’s what they shared with us on Spreadshirt’s 7th Innovation & Hacking Day.
