“The Pantone Color of the Year reflects what is taking place
in our global culture, expressing what people are looking
for that color can hope to answer.”
added Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute.
“Creating a new color for the first time in the history of our
Pantone Color of the Year educational color program reflects
the global innovation and transformation taking place.
As society continues to recognize color as a critical form
of communication, and a way to express and affect ideas
and emotions and engage and connect, the complexity of this new red
violet infused blue hue highlights the expansive possibilities that lay before us”.
