cinnamon & sugar is a blog to collect pieces of my work on color, get it out and get feedback.  Having colored products for Philips Medical Systems as a side activity to designing them, color became a love affair of mine – and that although real paint is part of the tricky business of color. Later the color of light was a focus of my work as a Designer for Philips Lighting. But jobless in the tropics I finally got to conceptualize color tools, which was fun. So color made it to a proper love with loyalty and friendship and all.
