Ultimate Grey and illuminating, an optimistic shade of yellow are the 2 shades that Pantone named as its colours of the year in 2021
Ultimate Grey, a calm hue that represents serenity, steadiness and resilience, while the bright Yellow shade is meant to evoke the optimism of a sunny day.
The colours have been described as a colour combination that gives us hope and resilience. Together these two colour tones are said to express a message of strength and hope, rock solid but warming and optimistic at the same time
HERE’S WHAT PANTONE SAY MAKES A COLOUR OF THE YEAR
The Pantone Colour of the Year selection process requires thoughtful consideration and trend analysis. To arrive at the selection each year, Pantone’s colour experts at Pantone Colour Institute comb the world looking for new colour influences. This can include the entertainment industry and films in production, traveling art collections and new artists, fashion, all areas of design, popular travel destinations, as well as new lifestyles, playstyles, and socio-economic conditions. Influences may also stem from new technologies, materials, textures, and effects that impact colour, relevant social media platforms and even upcoming sporting events that capture worldwide attention.
For over 20 years, Pantone’s Colour of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in multiple industries, including fashion, home furnishings, and industrial design, as well as product packaging and graphic design.
