The Classic Blue is the Pantone color of the year for 2020. Is a color inspired by the sea. A calming gradation, the quiet one decided by the Pantone Color Institute.
“In these difficult times, as we move towards a new decade, the Pantone Color Institute has come back in time. Color is an anchor that offers stability, constancy and connection ”.
said Laurie Pressman, vice president of global consulting, trend analysis and color analysis suppliers.
According to Laurie Pressman, this type of sky is not the same as “midnight blue, it invites reflection, but it is not so deep and mysterious. It speaks of our feeling of expectation, when you think of the sky at dusk, the day is not yet over. Are you thinking, what’s waiting for us? It is reassuring, but stimulating. It underlines our desire to have a reliable and anchoring base on which to build while crossing the threshold for a new era. We live in a time that requires trust, faith and self-confidence. We all see this blue sky and we can relate to it, it is within our reach ”. The new color is similar to maritime blue and yet not indigo and brighter than navy blue, the Classic Blue evokes a feeling of infinity: it is the Pantone 19-4052.
