What is Pantone Color?
Starting from 2000, Pantone, which provides universal language of color that enables color-critical decisions through every stage of the workflow for brands and manufacturers, would make an announcement of “Color of the Year”; in design related field, we call it Pantone Color.
Pantone color tells the spirit of the global, meanwhile it conveys the expectation and attitude from the customers.
