A fusion of the practical and the optimistic. A mixture of strength and positivity, deep feelings and friendliness. Pantone has chosen two colors for their 2021 Color of the Year, Ultimate Gray and Illuminating Yellow. This color alliance reminds us to be creative and hopeful, to be supportive and collaborate, to initiate and maintain connections, to look forward with resolve and energy.
“The union of an enduring Ultimate Gray with the vibrant yellow Illuminating expresses a message of positivity supported by fortitude. Practical and rock solid but at the same time warming and optimistic, this is a color combination that gives us resilience and hope. We need to feel encouraged and uplifted; this is essential to the human spirit.”
— Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute
