Pantone LLC, the global authority on color, has designated PANTONE® 15-0343 “Greenery” as Color of the Year for 2017. The company describes “a refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.”
Never at a loss for words, Pantone Color Institute® Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman says; “Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the hope we collectively yearn for amid a complex social and political landscape. Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate, revitalize and unite, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.”
