Living Coral – the Color of the Year!
We can expect to see more of this color in our lives and on our news feeds. Pantone has selected this color because “Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment.
In reaction to the onslaught of digital technology and social media increasingly embedding into daily life, we are seeking authentic and immersive experiences that enable connection and intimacy. Sociable and spirited, the engaging nature of [Living Coral] welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity. Symbolizing our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, [Living Coral] embodies our desire for playful expression.
Representing the fusion of modern life, PANTONE Living Coral is a nurturing color that appears in our natural surroundings and at the same time, displays a lively presence within social media.”
What can be found in nature that embodies this color? Obviously the coral reef and some reef dwelling fish, but I went through my archives and selected my favorites (no coral reefs involved!) and will definitely be on the watch in 2019 for this beautiful, warm tone.
