Pantone unveiled its 2021 Color(s) of the Year: 17-5104 Ultimate Gray + PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating. “It’s a combination that speaks to the resilience, the optimism and hope and positivity that we need, as we reset, renew, reimagine and reinvent,” said Laurie Pressman, vice president of the Pantone Color Institute.
I honestly have mixed feelings about this one. It kind of reminds me of hi-vis vests or road markings I was definitely much more excited about the 2016 duo, Rose Quatz and Serenity. I couldn’t have said it better than Ben Moss at WebdesignerDepot, “Perhaps that’s why Pantone’s PR department opted for two colors in 2021: a nondescript grey to keep us going until we’re all vaccinated, and a wildly luminous yellow for the latter part of the year.”
Nonetheless, here are some products we shot in our last catalog. The original color combos were yellow and blue, but I changed it to get a glimpse of home décor styling in 2021. Thoughts?
