In case you are not aware of this, Pantone chose to name two colors instead of one as the PANTONE COLORS OF THE YEAR 2016.The chosen colors are – Rose Quartz & Serenity.
‘Rules are meant to be broken’.This was demonstrated first time in the history of Pantone to choose two colors.This proves rules are meant to be broken.
As per Pantone,
Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.
According to ABC’s report, every year, Pantone, a company comprised of color experts who find, observe, and pinpoint global trends, picks a shade that it believes will assert itself and be reflected in everything from fashion to beauty products to home decor to graphic design. The Pantone Color of the Year choice is the result of the firm’s research.
It was also said,“This more unilateral approach to color is coinciding with societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity, the consumers’ increased comfort with using color as a form of expression which includes a generation that has less concern about being typecast or judged, and an open exchange of digital information that has opened our eyes to different approaches to color usage.”
But, why instead of one did Pantone opt for a pair of colors?
Times have changed.Pantone believes that binary, “one or the other” ways of looking at color are no longer the norm.
Pantone Color Institute Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman also stated on the site that “in many parts of the world, we are experiencing a gender blur as it relates to fashion, which has in turn impacted color trends throughout all other areas of design.”
