Pantone Color of the Year 2020 Is Classic Blue
Every December there’s a buzz in air, and not just about the holidays. Pantone announces their Color of the Year. Designers put color schemes together. Beauty tips announce which cosmetics to apply in the new year. Companies rush around to incorporate the Color of the Year with their vision to offer new products.
Pantone chose Classic Blue to start a new decade with stability and dependability. Just the ideals people are yearning for.
With only the first month of 2020 past, there’s still plenty of time to incorporate 2020s color.
When did Pantone start choosing their Color of the Year?
We’re celebrating two decades of Colors of the Year. Pantone chose its first Color of the Year in 2000. Cerulean Blue – representing tranquility and calm - was chosen for the new millennium. (For more Pantone colors history, check out Visme.co blog post. It’s informative and visually appealing.)
Hmmm… different decades, different blues.
