Classic Blue – Pantone announces its colour of the year as this cool blue hue

Pantone has announced its colour of the year for 2020, and have revealed that “classic blue” will be the “reassuring” colour that will mark the start of a new decade. Every year since 2000, The Pantone Colour Institute has selected a colour as its colour of the year, the colour that it believes to be representative of society at the time. The colour blue has now been chosen 7 times. Pantone state that “we are living in a time that requires time and faith”, which is why the “constancy and confidence expressed” by the “solid and dependable” Classic Blue has been selected.

"It's a color that anticipates what's going to happen next," said Laurie Pressman, the vice president of the Pantone Color Institute, which selects the Color of the Year. "What's the future going to bring as we move into the evening hours?"

Pantone has partnered with different designers and brands to create a “multisensory experience”, using different forms on their Instagram to represent this new colour. They want to represent the sight, smell, taste, sound and feel of Classic Blue in collaboration with partners of Pantone.
