Pantone Color of the Year (2016)

Introducing Rose Quartz & Serenity


As consumers round' the globe ramp up for the festive holiday season, the folks at Pantone have been steadily preparing for their annual release of official yearly Pantone colors. In the eyes of Pantone, the world is experiencing a bit of a "gender blur" as it relates to fashion, which has impacted several other areas of design. As consumers begin to increasingly create and join societal movements toward equality, the world of color in turn must adapt to reflect and personify these movements. Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Institute offers this insight:

Joined together Rose Quartz & Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.
