Pantone Just Announced Color of the Year 2020

2020 is going to be blue! Pantone has just announced that the color of the year 2020 is PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue. This international referent of color trends has chosen a deep and sophisticated blue for the new decade, symbolizing a time of change. With this color, Pantone raises awareness of the necessity of calm, peace, and trust within a world dominated by chaos. 

Classic blue

While last year the Institute chose Living Coral as an energizing and life-affirming color, classic blue has come to instill us calm and confidence. Pantone Classic Blue has been selected after a thoughtful process of analysis and study of trends in all the industries. So get ready to see it everywhere!

At Freepik Company, as an international company offering graphic resources, we have also joined the Classic Blue fever! We know that you don’t like missing any trend, that’s why we’ve prepared a compilation of resources, color palettes, and collections so you can incorporate this reassuring shade into your 2020.

What does Classic Blue evoke?

Pantone’s selection reminds us of the sky at dusk, of that point in the horizon where the sky and the ocean merge. It’s also the color of serene waters and the ocean when seen from above.

Beyond its sophisticated simplicity, Pantone 19-4052 Classic Blue brings us hope and reassures our uncertainties about what is to come. This blue shade instills us calm and “brings a sense of peace and tranquility to the human spirit, offering refuge”, the company affirms.

According to color psychology, blue is the color of trust and confidence. It’s no wonder that this shade is a safe choice for many companies. In fact, Classic Blue has some resemblance with the corporate blue that represents Freepik Company 😉
