Pantone reveals its Colour of the Year 2017

The global authority on colour, Pantone, have just announced that their Colour of the Year for 2017 is the refreshing PANTONE 15-0343 Greenery. This zesty yellow-green shade is the perfect palette cleanser for 2016, which coincidentally enough was represented by a combination of bruise-like hues which you could argue perfectly summed up the year ahead.

This took into account trends in the entertainment and film industries, as well as fine art, fashion, and lifestyle habits.
