The Color of the Year is… Living Coral!
Coral has become an increasingly popular color over the years, but this year, Pantone is putting this color on the map in a big way.
According to Pantone’s website, “Vibrant, yet mellow PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment. In reaction to the onslaught of digital technology and social media increasingly embedding into daily life, we are seeking authentic and immersive experiences that enable connection and intimacy. Sociable and spirited, the engaging nature of PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity. Symbolizing our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embodies our desire for playful expression. Representing the fusion of modern life, PANTONE Living Coral is a nurturing color that appears in our natural surroundings and at the same time, displays a lively presence within social media.”
Living coral represents and showcases the beauty of living, healthy coral reefs. For Pantone’s vice president, Laurie Pressman, “it also calls to mind the urgency of mitigating the impact of climate change on reef ecosystems.”
