Every January, Pantone announces what they call the color of the year, the color they predict will represent the entirity of the coming year. As we wrap up 2020, a year stranger than most of us have ever experienced, Pantone decided 2021 couldn't possibly be represented by just one color and, for the first time ever, chose two colors instead of just one. 

The two colors, a grey and a yellow (PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating are described by Pantone as a "marriage of color conveying a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting." The combination of colors are intended to signify both hope and resilience. 

Past colors of the year include 2020's Classic Blue and 2019's Living Coral.

Pantone helps people define, communicate and control consistency of use of color.
