The shades of red

There are over 16 million different shades of colors in the entire color spectrum. To differentiate between all those colors, graphic designers typically speak from pantone colors. To describe specific color shades in terms of pantone (combination of letters and numbers) is also common in the textile industry and production of fabrics.

The distinction between the 16 million+ different colors is impossible for the human eye. To make things much easier to describe a particular shade, a list of color was created, giving each shade a unique name.

As far as the color red is concerned, there are over 30 different shades. Most fashion designers name their colors after this list. Not only is this much easier to comprehend for a non-graphics designer, but giving each shade of red a unique name also sounds a lot more elegant and much better suited for fashion. The list of colors for the shade of red is listed below (please click on the image for a better view):
