The Pantone colour of the year has recently been announced. ‘Ultimate Grey’ and ‘Illuminating’ Yellow come together to form a ‘marriage of colour’. The pairing of these colours conveys a message of strength and hope that is both enduring and uplifting.
The bright shade of yellow, called Illuminating, is said to evoke the “optimistic promise of a sun-shine filled day”. Whilst the complimentary Ultimate Grey is a more mellow hue said to resemble “composure, steadiness and resilience.
Pantone’s choice of two independent colours highlights the ability of different elements coming together to express the same message of strength and hope. After almost a year of uncertainty, the selected colours are a true reflection of the worlds strength and fight in overcoming a global pandemic.
