It’s the new year and it’s time for a new look.
Here’s what Pantone’s color guru Leatrice Eiseman had to say about the selection:
Pantone’s Color of the Year is a symbol of what people are needing, based on what is happening in the world around them. I felt that Tangerine Tango is just the color to break the malaise and much-needed today. Walk into many clothing department and you are faced with a sea of gray and black as retailers ‘play it safe’. It’s the bland leading the bland. Splashes of tangerine are a much needed jolt of visual Vitamin C. This color is not a downer, but an upper.
Wow. That’s a lot to expect of one color…Don’t you think?!
Did you know that Pantone puts out the color trends twice a year? Their predictions influence designer runways, fabric shows, home decor and pop culture.
So what do you think? Will you be incorporating a little Tangerine Tango in your designs this year?
