Color of the Year 2021

Discover the meaning of the Pantone Color Institute Color of the Year 2021


For twenty years, the announcement of the Pantone Color of the Year has been an eagerly awaited event, which influences product development choices and purchases in many sectors, such as design, fashion, home furnishings and graphic design. The Color of the Year 2021 is a combination of PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray + PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating, a light gray and a bright and happy yellow, to show how different elements can come together to support one another. The concrete, dependable and solid elements of the gray are combined with the warm, sunny and optimistic features of the yellow, creating a mix of strength and positivity. Just what we need in these difficult times, in which people are looking for ways to “fortify themselves with energy, clarity and hope to overcome the continuing uncertainty.”

Although we do not always realize this, colours have a very strong impact on our daily emotions. The Pantone Color Institute experts know this and study global colour trends, conduct research in colour psychology and the emotion of colour and offer consultancy services to international companies in relation to colour in product and brand visual identity.
