Do You Know the Color of the Year?

By Janet Dodrill

Having been educated in the graphic arts and printing industry in my career as a graphic designer, when color giant Pantone® speaks, I listen!

Artists and designers, you may be interested to know that Pantone® has named the color of the year – Marsala. According to their web site it is described as “a naturally robust and earthy wine red.”

Additionally, the Pantone® Fashion Color Reports for Spring 2015 and Fall 2015 have been announced. These reports are released months in advance, the Spring report was released last September, and the Fall report was released this month (February). These reports are generated in conjunction with scheduled New York fashion shows that forecast clothing trends. I think it is very valuable as a designer to have this information to incorporate in creative visuals over the course of the year.

Color winners of the last five years are on the site, as well as other favorites.
