So, what’s all this craze about the 2019 Pantone Color of the Year, Living Coral? Heck, what is a Pantone?
The Pantone Matching System (PMS) is known as the universal language of color, and is a proprietary color space that’s used in a variety of industries, primarily graphic design, fashion design, and product design; and enables critical color decisions in every stage of the workflow, from branding to manufacturing.
Now, back to the 2019 Pantone Color of the Year…Living Coral…
…it’s vibrant, but also mellow…it embraces warmth, and nourishment, and wellness…it encourages lightheartedness, and embodies playful expression. Living Coral represents the fusion of our modern lives that appear in our natural surroundings, and at the same time, shows a lively presence within social media. Its animating and life-affirming coral hue and golden undertone energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.
And just like that, the Pantone Institute highlights top seasonal colors for the runway, forecasts global color trends, and provides advice to companies on product colors and visual brand identity. More than likely, what you’re wearing, or that cup you’re sipping your favorite cup of joe from, or that pin and that planner you’re writing your 2019 goals in, or your next event’s color palette has been inspired in some kind of way by a previous or current Pantone Color of the Year. Take a look at how Living Coral has inspired the color trend in fashion, office spaces, home decor, and events.
So, What’s Your Color for 2019?
It’s called color psychology…it works.
