Pantone is the go-to authority on colour for designers and design-focused companies (like EQ3) everywhere. They act as “the standard language for colo(u)r communication” (quoted from Pantone.com) and are looked yearly for their colour forecasts and trend reports.
Ever heard of a little thing called Color of the Year? Well, that’s compliments of these guys.
This year marks the company’s 50th anniversary! To celebrate the occasion, Pantone has created a fun colour-themed infographic that recaps 50 years in colour. See colour trends organized by decade, past Color of the Year selections, as well as the top three colours that trended on social media in 2012.
