Pantone Colour of The Year : Classic Blue


Pantone Colour agency, the universal provider of language of colour, initially started as a commercial printing company. Later it later transformed to a colour matching agency. Pantone was readily adopted by graphic designers and printing houses for its rather exceptional work. Therefore the company has been working on the colour of the year for more than 20 years now.

The Classic Blue

A timeless and enduring blue hue, PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue is unquestionably a very rich colour. The colour is explicitly suggestive of the sky at dusk. The reassuring qualities of the Classic Blue emphatically highlight a desire for a dependable and stable foundation. A  desire that we can surely  build on in the years to come.

The Classic Blue evidently brings a sense of peace and tranquility to the human spirit, offering refuge without a doubt. Aiding concentration and bringing laser like clarity, PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue re-centers our thoughts. A reflective blue tone, Classic Blue fosters resilience.

What Pantone says about Classic Blue?

“Colour expresses how we feel and this particular blue captures our desire for calm, dependability, stability and constancy, as we are nervous about entering the next decade,” explains Laurie Pressman, vice president of the Pantone Color Institute. “We want to feel secure and welcomed.”

To quote Leatrice Eiseman ,Executive director of Pantone colour institute,”We are living in a time that requires trust and faith. It is this kind of constancy and confidence expressed by PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue, a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on. Imbued with a deep resonance, Classic Blue provides an anchoring foundation. A boundless blue evocative of the vast and infinite evening sky, 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.”
