F42473 is a hexcode for the color...F42473, a sort of pinkish magenta. It started as a branding idea, a way to cohesively identify myself across platforms of social media et. al.. The idea of a color could transcend profile picture formats and the hex code for said color was the obvious solution for a consistent username. 

Whereas architects typically use a highlight color in diagrams I chose to use one for identity, the logo without the logo - simply hue. 

This idea, represented in this website, and across my platforms is constantly evolving.
