Why Is Pantone So Important?
Pantone is a U.S.based company that determines and maintains color standards for businesses and industries. Pantone Institute has been an authority on colors for years ever since 2000 with Cerulean Blue (remember Devil wear’s Prada?)
They select colors considering everything going on that year, from travel to technology, and of course the cultural context.
Sometime like this year’s color, they choose an existing shade while other they invent a color like it happened with Very Peri in 2021 which was a blend of colors for previous years. You can learn more on the importante of colors on modern brands in here.
