A New Color
The announcement of the new color is also the first time that Pantone has created a color.
“Creating a new color for the first time in the history of our PANTONE Color of the Year educational color program reflects the global innovation and transformation taking place. As society continues to recognize color as a critical form of communication, and a way to express and affect ideas and emotions and engage and connect, the complexity of this new red violet-infused blue hue highlights the expansive possibilities that lay before us,” said Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute.
Additionally, the Pantone Color Institute has been releasing its Color of The Year since 1999. Moreover, the colors have been used in various industries.
In 2020, the institute introduced Ultimate Gray and Illuminating as its colors for 2021.
