It’s 2020! Incorporate Pantone® Colour of the Year into your designs!

“Classic Blue” - a timeless and enduring hue, elegant in its simplicity.

Colour company Pantone® has announced 19-4052 “Classic Blue” as their Colour of the Year for 2020.

The annual colour, which has been announced each December for over 20 years, is chosen based on "what is taking place in our global culture at a moment in time".

As the Director of the Pantone Colour Institute, Leatrice Eiseman notes “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. 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.

According to Pantone®, Classic Blue is already being used in fashion, interior design, textiles and graphic design.
