Northwest Portland is a great place to spot examples of cutting-edge crane fashion. Carefully coordinating the crane's colors with the building colors produces a sophisticated, elegant look (above). It's worth taking the time to find the best looking crane. A mismatched, clashing crane would look sloppy, and may even create the impression that you only have one crane.
A bold contrasting crane color can also work (above). Notice how the yellow logo on the blue body serves as an accent color to link the crane with the building, and the horizontal position of the crane keeps it from competing with the background.
Well, that's all for this look at crane fashion. I'll be out looking for more examples to show you.
