Get Trendy with Colors of the Year for 2024/2025
Colors are very important in our daily lives. For example, the colors of what we wear can express our identity, mood, and even enhance our personality. Therefore, color is one of the tools that is used to influence consumers’ purchasing decisions and drive business.
The color of the year is updated every year to serve as design guide or selling points for various products by the world-renowned color design company such as Pantone. In the design and printing industry, color often became one of the key challenges in communication. For example, a customer may request a color green, but what exact shade of green? The fact that every color has indefinite number of shades makes communication complicated. To solve this challenge, Pantone founder Larry Herbert created specific color names and codes to help customers choose the right colors. By configuring the standardized color values for printing and designing, confusion was eliminated, and communication has since become more streamlined and successful.
In addition, various industries such as fashion, garment, textiles, sports, pharmaceutical, interior design, furniture, automobiles, and many more, have been taking advantage of the color of the year from Pantone as well. This practice reflects the consumer’s trends which help drive business, and many industries plan their marketing strategies around color of the year to develop suitable products that would help them achieve their goals.
Some interesting examples of the colors of the year in 2023 include Elfin Yellow. It is a light shade of yellow color that expresses nature, is minimalistic and easy on the eyes, so it has been used in home decorations by a Scandinavian brand Nordic Nest. Another popular color in 2023 was Viva Magenta, a color that stimulates energy. Curtain and interior design companies have used this color to decorate workplaces. It was also used by Motorola in their collab project Motorola Edge 30 Fusion x Pantone, as well as by Fiat as a color choice for their car models.
