Pantone has announced not just one, but two colours of the year for 2021 – Ultimate Grey and Illuminating. It’s only the second time in two decades that they’ve opted for two colours and, given 2020, that’s not too surprising.
As the above shows, Ultimate Grey is quite a standard grey whereas Illuminating is a happy, sunshine yellow tone. Pantone wanted the message of these two colours to be ‘strength and hopefulness’, with Illuminating being a colour to symbolise uplifting and Ultimate Grey being one to symbolise enduring.
It’s a great message on the whole and we love how well these two colours compliment each other.
