The Pantone Color Institute announced that the 2020 Color of the Year is PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue. Through extensive research into trends across industries and around the world, the color was chosen because it evokes stability, tranquility and resilience. As we enter into a new decade in a time where technology continues to speed up the pace of everyday life, Classic Blue—an honest, relaxed, comfortable color—acts as a calming antidote.
A boundless blue evocative of the vast and infinite evening sky, Classic Blue encourages us to look beyond the obvious to expand our thinking; challenging us to think more deeply, increase our perspective and open the flow of communication.—Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute
