The Pantone Colour of the Year 2021

Everything Will Get

The Pantone colours of the year 2021 are:

‘PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating’, and
‘PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray’.

" A marriage of color conveying a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting."

This year's two Pantone colours highlight how different elements come together to support one another. Practical and rock solid but at the same time warming and optimistic, the union of these two independent colours is one of strength and positivity. It is a story of color that encapsulates deeper feelings of thoughtfulness with the promise of something sunny and friendly.

A message of happiness supported by fortitude, the combination of these two colours is aspirational and gives us hope. We need to feel that everything is going to get brighter – this is essential to the human spirit.*
