FEATURE | ANNUAL COLOR FORECAST
SPONSORED BY PANTONE
Color is among the most powerful ways to communicate messages about products, services, causes and ideas. And color forecasts are where theory and practice come together, where the rubber meets the road. Color choices are influenced by broad societal events and attitudes — as you will see in the report — and the process is so complex and evolutionary that no simple explanation suffices. A special thanks to Pantone for helping us develop this year's report.
