So apparently, I’m the only one who loves the richness of this year’s Pantone’s Color of the Year. The color is Marsala – and sure while it looks like the wonderfully rich, dark bloody mixture of beef blood mixed with beef broth, it also looks like a wonderfully fragrant dark wine. I guess it all depends on your perspective.
My perspective – its better than that orchid color they named last year!
Below is an article that has links to what others have said about the color choice.
Every year since 1990, the Pantone Color Institute has nominated a Color of the Year, forecasting which specific hue designers and consumers will all supposedly be using, wearing, and buying for the following 12 months. Last week, Pantone announced that the 2015 Color of the Year is Marsala.
In a company press release, Pantone described the color as “a naturally robust and earthy wine red.” While last year’s Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid, “encouraged creativity and innovation, Marsala enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.
