Shutterstock reveals 2019's trending colours

It's hard to believe that we're hurtling towards the end of 2018. It feels like only yesterday that Pantone revealed its enigmatic Colour of the year, and over the last twelve months we've seen the creation of the world's most unignorable colour and a trend for bold and saturated hues. Designers and fans of colour theory are already wondering what 2019 has in store, and now Shutterstock has the answer.

Today, the global marketplace for images has released its 2019 Color Trends report based on pixel data and image download data. By studying the actions of its users, Shutterstock has been able to identify the top three universally popular colours, as well as pin-pointing local favourites from different countries from around the world.
