The Crayon-Bow, Crayola Color Chart updated

I’m not sure how I missed this, but the designer know as Velociraptor has updated his original Crayola Color Timeline that I posted about last year, into the the new Crayon-Bow (half rainbow - half rising sun).

The original was a square, straightforward representation, but the colors in the later years were shown in very small slices are hard to see.

A number of other visual layouts were tried, but the arc style visual not only allowed the colors from the later years to be easier to see, but the original eight colors pointing inwards look like the tips of brand new crayons as well.

I love the new version.  Found on Twitter: @printmag, @wired, @awaaza

I see the primary colors, blue and green. But I'm just not sure if the color at the bottom of the second infographic is red? I think it's not that red.
I would really print this out. Thanks. I hope all the colors shown in the infographic is as accurate as the real crayons. But I like the idea nonetheless.
