Pantone has announced its colour of the year for 2019!
The colour authority has selected PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral as next year’s most influential shade for multiple industries, including fashion, home, industrial design, product, packaging as well as graphic design.
The warm, bright hue immediately brings the ocean’s coral to mind — a thought-out choice for our ever-changing environment.
“In reaction to the onslaught of digital technology as well as social media increasingly embedding into daily life, we are seeking authentic as well as immersive experiences which enable connection as well as intimacy,” Pantone stated from the announcement. “Sociable as well as spirited, the engaging nature of PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral welcomes as well as encourages lighthearted activity. Symbolizing our innate need for optimism as well as joyful pursuits, PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embodies our desire for playful expression.”
“PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral emits the desired, familiar, as well as energizing aspects of colour found in nature,” the statement added. “In its glorious, yet unfortunately more elusive, display beneath the sea, which vivifying as well as effervescent colour mesmerizes the eye as well as mind. Lying at the center of our naturally vivid as well as chromatic ecosystem, PANTONE Living Coral is usually evocative of how coral reefs provide shelter to a diverse kaleidoscope of colour.”
For 2018, Pantone selected Ultra Violet as colour of the year. 2019 marks the 20th year of the annual selection.
