Ever seen a sharkskin promo pen? How about a spicy mustard promo mug? Well, according to the colouring experts at Pantone, we could soon be seeing a lot more of these exotically named colours on the everyday objects that surround us – including promotional products.
Pantone have just released their colour predictions for autumn 2016, backed by a series of lovely-looking mood boards. Pantone’s research is helping to showcase, and also inspire, the many different uses of these colours in areas such as fashion, packaging and product design. As mentioned in our intro, it seems that sharkskin (grey) and spicy mustard (yellow) are among the top colour choices for designers this year.
“The desire for tranquillity, strength, and optimism have inspired a autumn 2016 colour palette that is led by the Blue family,” confidently predicts Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Colour Institute. “These unexpectedly vivacious colours in our autumn 2016 palette act as playful but structured departures from your more typical autumnal shades.”
