White design in big urban advertisements helps separate your ads from the noise of a city.
White may be basic, but it can also help people pay attention to your product! Think about the Beatles iconic White Album. It is one of the greatest albums of all time!

International Klein Blue #002fa7
This color is art in and of itself. Originally mixed by Yves Klein, while he was in a particularly blue period, although blue had always had a special meaning for Klein. He said that all other colors have overly-specific associations, and he felt that true nature was represented by the blue of the sky and the sea.
In 1946, he dreamt that he signed his own name on the back of the sky, and then got angry at the birds that flew across the sky and spoiled what he called his “greatest and most beautiful creation.” So ya, blue was a big deal to Klein, and today we celebrate what a big deal Klein was to blue.
