Forty-five years ago, Pantone, Inc. revolutionized the graphic arts industry with the launch of the colorful PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM®, enabling designers and printers to faithfully articulate and reproduce accurate color anywhere in the world. Each color identified with a unique number for precise specification. Pantone achieved global acceptance and quickly became the standard in the printing and graphic arts industries.
As the company moved into more lifestyle-oriented industries, the concept of a numbering system associated with corresponding color names became even more important in communicating the exactness of a color. Today, Pantone LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of X-Rite, Incorporated, has emerged as the vocabulary of color in all aspects of the visual world, providing products, technologies and services for the colorful exploration and expression of creativity.
A symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.
For the first time Pantone introduces two shades, Rose Quartz and Serenity as the PANTONE Color of the Year 2016. Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.
In addition to coloring our world and constantly improving and evolving the field of color communication, PANTONE is the color platform upon which our interiors, exteriors, fashions and home products are created and manufactured. Pantone collaborates with corporations on color consistency, directs designers on colors and trends, and licenses paint and designer-inspired products for consumers around the world.
