Trend prediction is big business and the Pantone Color Institute is the one we look to every year for the heads up on what coming our way. Highlighting top seasonal runway colours, forecasting global colour trends and advising companies on colour for product and brand visual identity, the Institute partners with global brands to leverage the power, psychology and emotion of colour in their design strategy.
Over more than 20 years, they’ve influenced product development and purchasing decisions in multiple industries and for 2019 they’re bringing us PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral, a vibrant, yet mellow tone that embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment. Aimed at representing the fusion of modern life, PANTONE Living Coral is a nurturing colour that appears in our natural surroundings and at the same time displays a lively presence within social media.
