Pantone and Uniqlo brought to you by Helvetica

Combining Pantone, Uniqlo and Helvetica – this poster series speaks designer talk to the masses. It would be interesting to ask someone that is a fan of Uniqlo if they have a clue as to what Pantone means?

    I am a fan of Helvetica and Pantone colors, but I don’t like Uniqlo clothes β€” a bad copy / version of GAP.

    I always thought it was the other way around?

  • M2

    I don’t like GAP either, but UNIQLO is even worst.
    By the way – UNIQLO came after the GAP, and is a copy of GAP β€” why the way around? GAP existed since I was a teenager, while UNIQLO is recent.

    I think UNIQLO can do well in America, but in Europe it will fail,
    because the design of their clothing is mediocre and boring.

    UNIQLO is investing massive amount of money in advertising,
    but what counts at the end, is the clothing they offer.

    I went to the store in London, and the clothing are terrible,
    and bad quality.

    Most costumers are Japanese or Chinese (always loyal to anything Japanese.),
    and middle-aged.

    Helvetica – Love it.
    Pantone – Love ’em.
    Uniqlo – They had me at “Uniqlock.”

    Mentioning “PMS colors” to the general public always seems to cause uncomfortable silences and juvenile chuckles, however. Hopefully the world will soon welcome our pigment overlords.

    ‘I think UNIQLO can do well in America, but in Europe it will fail, because the design of their clothing is mediocre and boring.’

    you couldn’t be more wrong. the new uniqlo shop in London is mobbed (not necessarily with Asian tourists either) and is featuring very heavily in the style press, in particular the Pantone cashmere. as for the quality, Uniqlo looks like Savile Row when compared to, say, American Apparel.

    And as for…

    Patronising twat.

    Ben –

    What’s patronising about wondering if every Uniqlo shopper knows what Pantone is? I could have said the same thing about Helvetica or for that matter CMYK. I don’t think the poster is bad for pointing out ink colours, but I do think it’s relevant to ask about how many people get β€œit”.

    I’m amazed and how many people think they are designers but don’t have a clue of how the helvetica typeface looks like…
