Colors of the year Back to overview

For the past 20 years, Pantone has set the color of the year. This color has influenced a lot of industries like fashion, interior, product- and graphic design and has changed purchasing decisions.

This year there are not one, but two colors:

“Practical and rock solid but at the same time warming and optimistic, the union of Ultimate Gray + Illuminating is one of strength and positivity. It is a story of color that encapsulates deeper feelings of thoughtfulness with the promise of something sunny and friendly.”

– Pantone

A message of happiness supported by fortitude that gives us hope. We need to feel that everything is going to get brighter – this is essential to the human spirit.
