Every year The Print Angels eagerly await the announcement of Pantone’s Colour of the Year and this year we’re delighted with the choice; Living Coral.
“Not only is it a divine colour, PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral reminds us of our environmental responsibilities within the print and textile industries,” commented Yvonne Gorman, owner of Essential Print Services. “When I look at this colour, It makes me feel relaxed – as though it is giving me a hug. Who knew that colour could do all that!”
Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone’s Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute commented, “colour is an equalising lens through, which we experience our natural and digital realities and this is particularly true for Living Coral. With consumer craving human interaction and social connection, the humanising and heartening qualities displayed by the convivial Pantone Living Coral hit a responsive chord.”
“You will no doubt see a lot of sea-related elements added to PrintBot during 2019. I particularly like the colour because it uses the same letters as my middle name – can you guess what it is?” Yvonne quizzed.
We have enjoyed celebrating 2018’s dynamic Ultra Violet and now we’re looking forward to what this immersive colour brings during 2019.
