The Colour For 2012

As the end of year draws ever closer we can look forward to 2012 and all the colours that come with it, and who better to turn to than Pantone, the globally recognised, industry standard of colour matching.

Honeysuckle has had it’s day, and now we embrace 17-1463, or Tangerine Tango if you prefer a much more memorable name!

We’re told that this “spirited reddish orange continues to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward” – a refreshingly optimistic outlook for the new year.

“Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®, and as someone who is a big fan of 021 C I’d be inclined to agree.

“Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.”

If you intend on using 17-1463 all relevant colour data can be found on the Pantone website here, or if you simply want to add a splash of colour to your next meeting then ditch your black Moleskine and take one of these along.
