Pantone Color of the Year 2020

The Pantone Color Institute has just announced that its 2020 Color of the Year  PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue, a deep blue shade that’s at once comforting and relatable.

pantone-color-2020.jpg“The sky at dusk – it’s not a midnight blue, it’s thoughtful, but it’s not so deep and mysterious,” she said. “It speaks to our feelings of anticipation, when you think about the sky at dusk, the day isn’t over. You’re thinking, what’s ahead of us? It’s reassuring, but thought-provoking. It highlights our desire for this dependable, anchoring foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era. We’re living in a time that requires trust and faith and confidence. We all see this blue sky and can relate to it, it’s approachable.”

PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue

This shade of blue is nostalgia yet modern, classic yet fresh, rich yet crisp, thoughtful yet still daring to look forward and take bold actions.  It is calm, confidence, trusty and noble.  This hue is both genderless and seasonless, making it both accessible and desirable, for people in all walks of life.

Here are some inspirations:
