But this is a blog about design and style and color is an important component of both. Color elicits moods and attracts the eye. If there is a color that epitomizes San Diego it would be blue. Not primary blue, but aqua blue and baby blue. Those blues make you think of relaxation and serenity.
The best example of this is our Coronado Bridge, which is becoming iconic to San Diego as the Golden Gate Bridge is to San Francisco.

This Blue can be found everywhere you look in San Diego. I took this photo from the Cabrillo National Monument:
Lest I forget about style in San Diego in regards to the color blue, we only need to look at our own San Diego Charger football team:

Their throwback uniforms are generally regarded as one of the best uniforms in sports history. The perfect pairing, aesthetically speaking, between a sports team and a city. Even though the Chargers got embarrassed on national television this past Monday night, they at least looked good doing it. Way to go Throwback Uniforms!
