Pantone Colour of The Year 2019 – Living Coral

2019 is the 20thtime that Pantone has unveiled their selection for Colour of the year. The 20thanniversary is crowned with an in our opinion extremely vivid, lively and revitalising colour: PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral. Living Coral is somewhat hard to define, as it ranges somewhere between a bright pastel orange to a soft pink. In any case, it is a joyful colour, exactly what we need to start off the year with enough motivation. Pantone describes the colour of the year concept as follows: “The Colour of the Year is one moment in time that provides strategic direction for the world of trend and design. In fact, Colour of the Year is a culmination of the Pantone Colour Institute’s year-round work forecasting trends and developing colour palettes for our clients.”As always, Pantone has partnered up with other companies to create unique products and features that highlight this year’s colour.


The partnership between Adobe and Pantone is already in its second consecutive year. They collaborate to offer a tailored and curated Colour of the Year collection of stock photo. This is to lead the creative community to be increasingly inspired by this year’s theme colour.
