Classic BlueAnnounced as Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2020
The hotly anticipated announcement of Pantone’s iconic Colour of the Year has finally taken place for 2020, and it’s given us a case of the blues.
A comforting shade of indigo, Classic Blue is the colour expert’s extended arms in otherwise societally turbulent times. Rooted in reassurance, the chosen shade is reminiscent of the sky at dusk – an observation that Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute says is no coincidence.
“The sky at dusk – it’s not a midnight blue, it’s thoughtful, but it’s not so deep and mysterious. It speaks to our feelings of anticipation, when you think about the sky at dusk, the day isn’t over. You’re thinking, what’s ahead of us? It’s reassuring, but thought-provoking.
“It highlights our desire for this dependable, anchoring foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era. We’re living in a time that requires trust and faith and confidence. We all see this blue sky and can relate to it, it’s approachable.”
