What’s a barometer of trends in fashion, entertainment, art, film and many other industries? Color is. And, no one tracks color trends and shapes future design aesthetic more than Pantone. Led by the Pantone Color Institute, experts annually set the color, or colors, to define the year to come.
This clever infographic by Bellacor explores the evolution and patterns of color since the year 2000. Overlooking the patterns and focusing on the individual years, we were drawn to 2007’s Chili Pepper (19-1557), 2003’s Aqua Sky (Pantone 14-4811) and the turn of the century’s cool Cerulean blue (Pantone 15-4020).
