The What, The Who, The Why The Pantone?

January 28, 2020


Suggestive of the sky at dusk, classic blue has been chosen as the colour of the year 2020. Pantone’s colour of the year has been a massive influence on all design-related businesses for the past 20 years. From interior design to graphic design, Pantone’s colour experts set the colour trends every year.

Classic Blue is said to be peaceful, calm and is said to attribute adherence and dependability. This colour was chosen due to its serenity to the human spirit.

Executive Director, Leatrice Eiseman said “A boundless blue evocative and of the vast and infinite evening sky, Classic Blue encourages us to look beyond the obvious to expand our thinking; challenging us to think more deeply, increase our perspective and open the flow to communication.”

Several articles have mentioned how no one knew what Pantone was when they first brought out “colour of the year” and it is now relied on by everyone in the design industry.
