Pantone Colour of the Year 2015 is Marsala


Pantone announced its colour of the year for 2015 today and that colour is Marsala.  It’s an interesting colour and so different to 2014’s Radiant Orchid!  Radiant Orchid I must admit was one of my favourites and I knew instantly what I could do with it and even just looking at it made me happy.  This one, is more subtle and I’m still mulling it over as all I can think of at the moment is chicken marsala and that it would be a nice colour for cosmetics.

If you don’t know what the Pantone colour of the year is all about, here is some background info for you:

The color of the year selection is a very thoughtful process. To arrive at the selection, Pantone quite literally combs the world looking for color influences. This can include the entertainment industry and films that are in production, traveling art collections, hot new artists, popular travel destinations and other socio-economic conditions. Influences may also stem from technology, availability of new textures and effects that impact color, and even upcoming sports events that capture worldwide attention.For more than a decade, Pantone’s Color of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in multiple industries, including fashion, home and industrial design, as well as product packaging and graphic design.
