Each year, Pantone announces the Color of the Year that becomes a major theme for designers across all industries. Last year’s Pantone Color of the Year was Marsala.
Uniquely enough, this year’s Color of the Year is actually the mix of two Pantone Colors: Rose Quartz & Serenity.
For your reference, the Pantone Color numbers are:
- Rose Quartz: 13-1520
- Serenity: 15-3919
If you would like more information on the Pantone color values for different color formats, visit this page on the Pantone site: Color of the Year 2016 Standards.
