Pantone recently announced its 2019 Color of the Year: Living Coral. Each year Pantone analyzes color trends and societal shifts to make their selection, and 2019’s orangey pink hue is meant to offer warmth and positivity in a world that individuals are increasingly experiencing as uncertain and impersonal.
“In reaction to the onslaught of digital technology and social media increasingly embedding into daily life, we are seeking authentic and immersive experiences that enable connection and intimacy. Sociable and spirited, the engaging nature of PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity. Symbolizing our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embodies our desire for playful expression.”
