Pantone is a standardized color matching system that assists in color matching and identification. Pantone states that the Color of the Year is actually “…a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our global culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.” They take into consideration all aspects of society: fashion, marketing, social media and even politics. The hue chosen as Color of the Year has become increasingly influential in the vast world of design and brand marketing.
2020 has been a most unexpected year, and the color institute has responded with an unexpected choice for 2021. Pantone Color of the Year 2021 is PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray + PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating that “is aspirational and gives us hope. We need to feel that everything is going to get brighter – this is essential to the human spirit.” “PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating is a bright and cheerful yellow sparkling with vivacity, a warming yellow shade imbued with solar power. PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray is emblematic of solid and dependable elements which are everlasting and provide a firm foundation. The colors of pebbles on the beach and natural elements whose weathered appearance highlights an ability to stand the test of time, Ultimate Gray quietly assures, encouraging feelings of composure, steadiness and resilience.”
