In Japan of course. The October issue of Nikkei Design (out Sept 24) highlights a new trend in product branding; hot pink. Companies across all industries appear to be picking up pink buckets of paint and taking their brushes to whatever they can get their hands on. A number of the products were understandable but I was a bit thrown by the car and refrigerator. I have to say, my favorite is the EGG Mouse. That is one good-looking mouse. I should devote an entire post to that mouse.
Lets work through this top to bottom.
