Pantone Colours of the Year 2021

Pantone Colours of the Year 2021

For many years, Pantone’s Colour of the Year has influenced a whole range of industries such as fashion, design and home furnishings.

Each year, the selection process for the colour of the year requires deep consideration by carefully analysing trends. Pantone’s colour experts look around the world for new colour influences such as economic conditions, travel destinations and art collections.

This year there are two shades of the year: PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray + PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating. These two colours convey a message of strength and hopefulness, ‘’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 colours 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.’’ - Pantone
