Pantone Colour of the Year – 2021 trends

11 December 2020

Ultimate Gray and Illuminating, an “optimistic” hue of yellow, are the two shades that Pantone has named as its colours of the year for 2021.

American colour company Pantone believes that the pairing of shades will help people “fortify themselves with energy, clarity and hope” in a world that’s set to face increasing uncertainty.

The bright yellow shade, called Illuminating, is meant to evoke the “optimistic promise of a sunshine-filled day”, while Ultimate Gray is a much quieter hue that speaks more of “composure, steadiness and resilience”.
