    PANTONE 16 1546 Living Coral

    There’s always passion for colours here, it’s great to see delegates faces when they see the swatches for the first time in the software and realise the range of colours they have to work with. However unlike last year when we wrote the Vibrant Ultra Violet(18-3838) post virtually on its date release we’re running late with these years appointed pantone. Which is, a luscious orange known as Pantone 16-1546 Living Coral and if you like bright, we do, then you will love this.



    PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral is –

    According to its creators “An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energises and enlivens with a softer edge” and that really does say it all. It is a beautiful colour. In fact you can read for yourself what Pantone have to say about their colour of the year right here.   


    Brief History of Pantone

    Life for Pantone began in the 1950’s and was the property of M & J Levine Advertising but the actual company as its recognised today in 2019 really began life in 1962 when Lawrence Herbert (who orginally worked for M & J Levine) purchased it. A small company Pantone had its origins in creating colour cards for cosmetic houses but with the new owner change came. He removed shades of colour and in 1963 introduced the first colour matching system. History being made.


    Today that is what Pantone does – it matches colours and brings them together to clarify colours without human action and produces accurate colour for the print process. For example the CMYK process – Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black inks bought together on a four print method to produce the perfect shades of colour.
