Crayola's Law

A chronology of Crayola’s chromatic growth from 8 colors in 1903 to 120 colors today (not including metallics and neon). Weather Sealed reports that the average annual growth rate of 2.56% means a doubling of available hues every 28 years. That’s 330 colors by 2050. So every generation’s “standard” box has twice the variety its parents had. Thirteen colors over the years have been officially retired and three colors underwent official name changes.
