Pantone’s Color of the Year 2021
Two colors have been chosen for this year, PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating, whose combination creates a perfect match, highlighting the importance of complementary.
“The selection of two independent colours highlight how different elements come together to express a message of strength and hopefulness, conveying the idea that it’s not about one colour or one person, it’s about more than one. The union of an enduring Ultimate Gray with the vibrant yellow illuminating expresses a message of positivity supported by fortitude. Practical and rock-solid but at the same time warming and optimistic, this is a colour combination that gives us resilience and hope. We need to feel encouraged and uplifted; this is essential to the human spirit”
Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of Pantone Color Institute
Never like right now of uncertainty and fragility, Pantone’s promise is to give a flash of light and energy and confidence to rediscover the lost balance.
