Pantone’s color of the year is a pinkish orange — or maybe it’s
an orange-y pink? Officially, it’s called “living coral,” and
Pantone describes it as “animating and life-affirming.” The trend
forecasters at Pantone — who have been announcing a zeitgeist-y
color of the year for 20 years apparently see the vibrancy of coral
as an antidote to the soulless tech age. “In reaction to the
onslaught of digital technology and social media increasingly
embedding into daily life, we are seeking authentic and immersive
experiences that enable connection and intimacy,” Pantone says in
its announcement. Anyway, millennial pink is definitely over
now.
