Baker-Miller Pink is a strong purplish pink color similar to the color of certain bubblegums available in the market because of which the color is also known to as bubblegum pink. There is an interesting history to this color and it has been the center of a fair bit of research and controversy.
In the late-1970s, inspired by the work of Max Lüscher, Alexander Schauss started experimenting on color and how it influences human behaviour including muscle strength and the cardiovascular system. He found that staring at a 18x24 inch board painted with a certain shade of pink markedly reduces the heart rate, pulse and respiration especially after strenuous exercise.
Dr. Schauss was able to convince the directors of a Naval correctional institute in Seattle to paint the interior of the holding prison cells with this pink color. This way the changes in the behaviour of prisoners could be studied. It was observed that hostility and erratic behaviour was substantially reduced in inmates which was directly attributed to this pink color.
The color can be applied on web pages via HTML and CSS code with its hex, RGB and HSL values. Please note that the CMYK numbers listed on this page have been derived from the hexadecimal code using known formulae and are only approximates. Other names: Bubblegum Pink and Drunk Tank Pink
