to achieve the accurate and inclusive skin tone palette, crayola teamed up with victor casale who applied his experience in creating foundation colors for global skin tones. ‘I have spent my life trying to create truly global shade palettes because I know what it’s like to be with a person who has finally found their exact match. they feel included and recognized, and I am hoping every child who uses these crayons and finds their shade will have that feeling,’ says casale. ‘growing up, I remember mixing the pink and dark brown crayons to try and make my shade, so I was thrilled when crayola asked for my help to create the colors of the world crayons.’
