Pantone Color of the Year – Classic Blue

Pantone Color of the Year - Classic Blue

Classic Blue (PANTONE 19-4052) is Pantone’s color of the year for 2020, “a timeless and enduring blue hue, … [it] is elegant in its simplicity.”

Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute® continued: “We are living in a time that requires trust and faith. It is this kind of constancy and confidence that is expressed by PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue, a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on. … Classic Blue encourages us to look beyond the obvious to expand our thinking.”

Looking a lot of client’s color palettes, I agree with the appeal of a classic and calming blue.

Pantone Color of the Year – Living Coral

Pantone Color of the Year - Living Coral

It’s that time of year. Pantone announced it’s color of the year for 2019 – Living Coral (PANTONE 16-1546) and described the color as “An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.”

On their website the Pantone Color Institute® describes it as “glorious” and “mesmerizing to the eye and mind.”

“Color is an equalizing lens through which we experience our natural and digital realities, and this is particularly true for Living Coral.”
– Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute®

Unlike some previous picks – Marsala & Greenery come to mind – this year’s selection is not something that appears too often on my color palette.

German stationary maker Stabilo’s campaign “Highlight the Remarkable” by DDB Group Düsseldorf highlight remarkable women – NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson, U.S. First Lady Edith Wilson and Austrian-Swedish physicist Lise Meitner – and their contributions, which were overshadowed by their male counterparts.

The campaign won Gold in the Outdoor and Silver in the Print & Publishing category at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity last month, and has since gone viral.
