Pink Is Cool Again: Pantone's Color(s) of the Year

For me pink has always been cool. To be perfectly honest, I like almost every color except for that weird faded green avocado color of the 60s. I do like the vegetable though. Getting back to the main point, this week Pantone announced their Color of the Year for 2016! This year Pantone actually has two colors a warm Rose Quartz and tranquil Serenity. This lovely combo finds its way into my design work frequently and now my clients think I'm psychic--or maybe just kinda obsessed with colors associated with cake frosting, donuts, weddings, and birthday parties. Anyways. I am happy. Great work Pantone.
