Colour of the Year

Pantone has announced their colour of the year for 2021. And just like everything else in 2020, it is a bit unusual. 

Pantone has selected two colours! They are PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray + PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating.

The union of an enduring Ultimate Gray with the vibrant yellow illuminating expresses a message of positivity supported by fortitude. Practical and rock solid but at the same time warming and optimistic, this is a color combination that gives us resilience and hope. We need to feel encouraged and uplifted; this is essential to the human spirit.
