Since 2000 Pantone have annually declared a ‘Colour of the Year’. Pantone colours are discussed at a top secret meeting at a top secret location. The colour purportedly connects with the zeitgeist – a statement about the state of the nation, the economy and the vibe on the planet. This year Radiant Orchid 18-3224 is top of the pops. Described as ‘a dazzling attention-getter’ with ‘rosy undertones’ it’s a modern and surprisingly versatile shade. Colour of the Year is important as it influences the hues on the High Street. Think it could be time to redecorate at #snogtowers! Time to talk to some Sisters-In-The-Know.  They’re sure to have a view.

A designer’s perspective

I love Pantone. Makes me feel like a kid in a candy shop. All those delicious colours to choose from. But most importantly as a designer  I love the fact that when I specify a Pantone colour I can guarantee the colour will be perfect every time.

A print expert’s perspective

When I think panto, I think colour. Vibrancy. Flair. Characters. When I think Pantone, I think colour. Image. Design. Brand. Both captivate & create something that’s full of colour.
