Pantone’s 2021 Color of the Year is here!

2021 is here! And with it, of course, comes Pantone’s Color of the Year. Or rather, Colorof the Year. Pantone has selected ‘Ultimate Gray,’ a classic gray tone and ‘Illuminating,’ a bright yellow hue.

Pantone says of their selections: “The union of Pantone Ultimate Gray + Pantone Illuminating is one of strength and positivity… Pantone Illuminating is a bright and cheerful yellow sparkling with vivacity, a warming yellow shade imbued with solar power. Pantone Ultimate Gray is emblematic of solid and dependable elements which are everlasting and provide a firm foundation.”
