Classic Blue encourages us to look beyond the obvious to expand our thinking; challenging us to think more deeply, increase our perspective and open the flow of communication,
Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, said in a statement.
The reason behind the choice is the instilling quality of the color that invokes calm, confidence, and connection. A timeless hue, Pantone 19-4052 Classic Blue is an elegant color that is suggestive of the sky at twilight. The thought-provoking Classic Blue highlights the desire for a stable foundation as the new era starts.
Pantone’s tradition of naming a color of the year began more than two decades ago. The Pantone Color Institute felt the need of introducing a calming shade which would be a representative of the spirit of the age. Therefore, it settled on a shade that offers the reassurance, confidence and connection that people may be searching for in an uncertain global milieu.
The Pantone Color Institute spends the year scouring the globe — from the runway to current events, technology trends and more — to find shades that are influencing society to choose its Color of the Year.
