FACT 75 Colour Code

Last year I spent some time programming a colour code wheel based on the one on several New Order releases including FACT 75 – Power, Corruption & Lies. Peter Saville created different coloured versions of of two colour rectangles stack vertically.

Below you can enter your message and have it outputted in the FACT 75 colour code wheel.

Originally I wrote this using Python mode in Processing. Here I have created a quick edit to run in pyp5js – Python with Processing graphics running on pretty much anyone’s machine with a recent browser, amazing!

The edit was very straight forward. There are a few things I would like to add, a simple word wrap algorithm and perhaps some more control over the style of the letters being displayed. Currently the letters are picking up the stroke from the previous colour code, originally a bug, but, I liked the way it looked so I’ve left in for now.
