It is time to give the DuBu a new facade. That’s how we got to work on the new face for DuBu. The formerly loamy field green should be changed by a fresher shade. But which color should it be? For me personally – specifically the Y-chromosome of the DuBu shaft – a sunny yellow such as melon yellow would have been very convenient. But staying abroad with this colour we found it too intrusive. Would’ve been really cool, though. The X-chromosome of the DuBu shaft would have preferred turquoise. Turquoise??? For real?

Which little piggy would like it?

Well, not a dirty color in the sense of very conspicuous. But it is not so easy to find a harmonious colour. We tried out – similar to the floor plan – hours and countless color variations on Photoshop. Cross-striped, lengthways striped, plain colors, two colors, three colors, several colors…

And finally – after an eternity of colour combinations – we have come to an agreement. The base color should be something light, sand-colored. Just between you and me, the part did get a soft yellow hue after all. Hehe… But it should not be so plain plain in a beige. And so we decided to use a shade of green as a second color.
