About this Curation

Pantone describes the living Coral (16-1546) colour of the year as, "an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge."
This is the twentieth year running Pantone has recognized a colour to stand out amongst others. Pantone recounts that the decision is influenced by multiple industries, including fashion, graphic design and industrial design. Bluethumb artists have also been inspired by the nurturing colour, incorporating living coral in their practice.
