Only three things are certain in the design world: death, taxes and the annual announcement of Pantone's Colour of the Year. Everyone's favourite hue authority has revealed 2024's shade, the cosily titled Peach Fuzz. 

Softly nestled between pink and orange, Peach Fuzz (officially Pantone 13-1023) is described by the company as "a compassionate and nurturing soft peach shade conveying a heartfelt kindness." (Pantone describes the colour in various ways, some of which can be found in the image captions below.) And as ever, Pantone has partnered with a bunch of brands to offer a bunch of stuff in said compassionate colour. Want to have some Peach Fuzz in your hand or home? Well, now you can.

As in previous years, Pantone has partnered with Motorola to create Colour of the Year-themed versions of its smartphones. Motorola has revealed special editions of its iconic Motorola razr+ and 40 ultra, along with the newly launched Motorola Edge 40 Neo – all in the "sensitive but sweet and airy" shade. "Peach Fuzz, aligns beautifully with Motorola’s pillars of inclusion and making technology more accessible. As technology becomes intertwined with humanity, we trust color to provide a tool for expression and deeper, more meaningful experiences with our devices," Pantone shared in a press release. The phones can be ordered via Motorola's website.
