PANTONE has announced the color(s) of the year for 2021. Apparently we have two colors instead of one for 2021 because 2020 does not count. They are Ultimate Gray (PANTONE 17-5104) and Illuminating (PANTONE 13-0647). The two colors are both independent and uplifting one another, something the design feel that everybody needs for 2021: being independent and uplifting each other through what happened in 2020.
“The Pantone Color of the Year reflects what is taking place in our global culture, expressing what people are looking for that color can hope to answer,” says Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute.
