Calm. Confidence. Connection.
The three ‘Cs’ and the three reasons behind the Pantone Color Institute’s selection of Classic Blue as its Color of The Year for 2020.
“This enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era,” is one of the many reasons the Pantone Color Institute cites for selecting this year's blue hue to take center stage.
We are living in a time that requires trust and faith. It is
the kind of constancy and confidence that is expressed in…
Classic Blue,” says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of
the Pantone Color Institute, “a solid and dependable blue
hue we can always rely on. Imbued with deep resonance,
Classic Blue provides an anchoring foundation.
Joining this rich blue are 15 other colors selected by the institute to see us through the year.
My favorite color to combine with Classic Blue is Saffron.
I also like a little Orange Peel in my Classic Blue tea.
Personally, I’m calling 2020, “The Year of Clarity,” the one in which I see with 20/20 vision in all aspects of my life. I want to see beyond the obvious, beyond what I see with my eyes, I want to 'see' with all of my senses, including the one upon which I've come rely the most – my sixth sense.
