Fionnuala Fallon from irishtimes said that You may have never heard of the Pantone Colour Institute, the hugely influential company whose much-anticipated annual predictions for future design trends include singling the colour or colours that will somehow define any particular year.
You probably don’t care in the slightest that of the two colours it’s selected for 2021, one is called Pantone 13-0647 Illuminating, a shade of eye-poppingly vibrant lemon-yellow (or Pandemic yellow as a friend wryly calls it) that the company describes as “one of strength and positivity . . . sunny and friendly”.
Amazing as it may seem, when Pantone speaks, a great many of the world’s designers and product developers listen. The result is that we can expect to see a whole lot of canary-yellow popping up everywhere in the months ahead, from fashion and home furnishings to product packaging and logos. Even, gulp! in our gardens.
