Posted on January 16th, 2020 03:04 PM

A new year brings new hope and new beginnings. And also brings the most anticipated announcement of the design and creative communities: Pantone’s Color of the Year. This year the color selected by the Pantone Institute is inspired by the calming seas and delightfully blue skies. And promises of a lasting refuge. The Color of 2020, Pantone 19-4052 Classic Blue - a solid hue one can always rely on!
Pitched somewhere in-between the mid sea blues and the falling ink of a dusky sky, this hue moves away from the strictures and conformity of the darker shades and is just short of the joys of simplicity, like in a child's paint box ~ the blue shade!
