The Colour Of The Year For 2019!

Every New Year brings with it new textures and colours that influence product development and design trends across fashion, interiors, product accessories, packaging and beauty industries. Pantone – the company known for providing professional colour standards and digital solutions for the design industry has officially announced the 2019’s colour and we’re super excited! According to the experts at Pantone – the colour of the year 2019 is Living Coral, PANTONE 16-1546 to be precise.

Out of all the hues to choose, why Coral?

Selecting a Colour of the Year that would influence industries all over involves thoughtful consideration and trend analysis. To arrive at each year’s colour, the experts at Pantone Colour Institute begin with identifying trending colour influences from around the world. This could be by studying new artists, fashion, popular travel destinations, movies, entertainment as well as important socio-economic conditions.

In the words of Leatrice Eisman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, “Color is an equalizing lens through which we experience our natural and digital realities, and this is particularly true for Living Coral. With consumers craving human interaction and social connection, the humanizing and heartening qualities displayed by the convivial Pantone Living Coral hit a responsive chord.”

Symbolizing our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embodies a desire for playful expression.
