What color is your happy place?
Pantone® has come out with its color pallete for this spring season, and there is a move toward the cooler and softer side of the color spectrum. A mix of colorful brights, pale pastels and nature-like neutrals.
The soft cool hues, blended with subtle warm tones creates a soothing escape from the everyday hustle and bustle.
For me personally, I am in love with the Scuba Blue®. This is a bold but subtle color, and gives a refreshing tropical feel. Glacier Gray® and Titanium® are also among my favorites this season. They blend well with both softer and bright color hues.
Color of the year:
Marsala®: Pantone’s pick for this year, this is the big one. Marsala is a timeless shade of red with distinct brown undertones, and was something of a surprise this year. Classy pick, Pantone®!
Marsala for Graphic Design
A rich contrasting color, Marsala is ideal for use in graphic design and packaging. Eye-catching, but not overwhelming or bright, consumers are immediately drawn to the hue, making it an alluring shade at point-of-purchase. As packaging becomes increasingly more artistic, Marsala will be a natural fit for both high- and low-tech materials, including on-shelf periodicals as well as printed assets, like calendars and stationery.
