Pantone Reveals Its Colour Of The Year

As with every year, Pantone reveals its colour of the year, this year they’ve announced that the Colour of the Year 2020 is Classic Blue (aka. Pantone 19-4052). 

According to the company, the tone of blue is “a reassuring presence instilling calm, confidence and connection […] Associated with the return of another day, this universal favourite is comfortably embraced.”

“A boundless blue evocative of the vast and infinite evening sky, Pantone 19-4052 Classic Blue encourages us to look beyond the obvious to expand our thinking; challenging us to think more deeply, increase our perspective and open the flow of communication,” added Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of Pantone Color Institute. “We are living in a time that requires trust and faith. It is this kind of constancy and confidence that is expressed by Pantone 19-4052 Classic Blue, a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on.”

Previous colours include Living Coral for 2019 and Ultra Violet for 2018.
