And just a few hours ago the Pantone Institute, the wordwide authority on colour, reveals a zesty shade of green as its 2017 Colour of the Year – why not look to them for inspiration?
Their two pastel 2016 Colours of the Year – Rose Quartz and Serenity – were soft, calming, and romantic.
2017’s choice – Greenery – is a refreshing and revitalizing shade, symbolic of new beginnings that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew.
Recently Pantone shared nine very different colour palettes the company predicts will be popular in 2017.
To do this, they pulled inspiration from current design trends (like metallics and black and white imagery), as well as bright colours from the film industry, most notably from films like Star Wars: The Force Awakes, The Peanuts Movie, and Disney’s Inside Out.
