With 2020 coming to a close, Pantone's 2021 color selections have been announced. This time, the brand opted for two colors of the year, which come together to form an aspirational pairing. 'Ultimate Grey' and 'Illuminating' are the official color choices, arriving in shades of grey and yellow respectively.
2020 has been an unpredictable year, making now a better time than ever for Pantone to disrupt the way they select their annual colors. When discussing the choice, Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute stated, “Practical and rock solid but at the same time warming and optimistic, this is a color combination that gives us resilience and hope." Both dependable and optimistic, these colors hope for a brighter year ahead.
