One should not brag. But when people repeatedly tells you how happy they are about your stuff, it is hard not to…. We recently received this photo of Kolormondo Pro on a pedestal (!). Suits our mood well (lol). It is published on Instagram by dcarvalho.ana from Colombia. She says “I just love this wonderful tool that you design! Thank you for creating it for all the color lovers of the world!”
And then we had this wonderful email from Jennifer Jones, a US teacher:
“I happened to find a rave review of Kolormondo spheres when searching for new ideas to teach my class about color theory. The post was from six years ago on The Art of Education (https://theartofeducation.edu/2015/02/17/a-revolutionary-tool-for-teaching-color/). Can’t wait to receive the materials so we can put the spheres together in class. I appreciate such wonderful resources – and thank you for providing great customer service!”
As if that was not enough we received this from another happy customer. Petronio Bendito, Associate Professor of Visual Communication Design, Rueff School of Design, Art, and Performance Purdue University, IN, USA:
“Kolormondo is an engaging tool to introduce color properties and relationships with the aid of a physical 3D model. Its scientific basis, coupled with its simplicity, makes it an attractive educational tool for many academic subjects and learners of all ages.I found them on Dickblick while looking for a “color wheel” to give to my students. I normally give students a color wheel in every class. I was excited to find a 3d model, instead. We got 30 units. Great idea! I will use it again next year!”
So proud and happy that we can help to spread colour understanding across the world and in all sorts of situations – and ages.
Has the global post system collapsed?
Kolormondo, like most companies, have been hit by fewer orders since March. This is something we can live we, we trust that the interest and need for basic colour understanding will soon be back. However, what we did not understand is the extent to which the orders that are still being made, do not arrive at their destination. Global postal services seems to have gone to sleep….. If you are still waiting for a Kolormondo, that you have paid for and correctly feel should arrive quickly, we can only apologize. There most be tons of letters and packages piling up – who knows where, some of them containing Kolormondo colour globes.
So the only thing we could do, other then to resend (completely useless, we have come to realize…..) is start doing tracked shipping. Annoying! It makes the costs increase. We can only promise that when things are back to normal, it will be less expensive to order our products.
Kolormondo now at Blick!
We are happy to announce that Kolormondo Mini is now being sold at dickblick.com! And it is soon available in Blick stores across the US!
A day full of colour
We had a wonderful day full of insights and surprises when colour expert Maggie Maggie from Portland, Oregon visited in Trosa. Thank you! Come again, soon!
