What are some more modern looking color schemes out there now for canvas? Let's face it there are some that are just played out...With one of the more popular Color Schemes being about 20 some years old now ( Pink,Teal, and White) it's showing it's age...Sure it was cool when Miami Vice was on TV but now it's time to move on...So I ask what are gonna be the new "Standard" in colors for Carnivals? Is Red and White gonna make a comeback?

Personaly I think it's not going to be about color as much as it will be about originality.

Now that computers and laser cutters can create wild designs such as RCS's custom canvas... I think you can make any color/s your signiture mark

there is alot of different patterns out there, so originality is the key, lots of new and bright colors out there today..

How about individuality on rides...Why spend $10 Gs painting a roller coaster to only put different color flags on it that don't match the ride...Or how about Hampton tops...Let each ride stand on it's own...

Personally I like orange red and white, or even better pewter red and black.
