Late last year, Pantone announced that its 2020 Colour of the Year would be PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue. In fact, the company described it as an enduring blue that highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation. So, Pantone acknowledges that with this new decade, we are crossing the threshold into a new era. Therefore, it selected Classic Blue to instil calm, confidence and connection during an era of challenge and change.

Classic Blue: An explanation

“We are living in a time that requires trust and faith,” notes Leatrice Eisemann, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Imbued with a deep resonance, Classic Blue provides an anchoring foundation.” Significantly, Pantone describes Classic Blue as “non-aggressive and easily relatable”. Also, the company acknowledges that in today’s hi-tech world, we gravitate to colours that are honest and offer the promise of protection. “Associated with the return of another day, this universal favourite is comfortably embraced,” Pantone concludes.
