Pantone’s origins go back to a commercial printing company in New York City in the 1950s. The company systematized and simplified its pigments and colored inks, and Pantone was born. In the decades since, Pantone has led the field of color, consistently introducing new products and expanding into new markets such as premium paints and lifestyle products. The unveiling of Pantone’s Color of the Year is now a marquee event, and the design world eagerly awaits Pantone’s trend forecasts. Always the innovator, the company launched Pantone Studio, a mobile app that provides a connected digital workspace for anyone who wants to speak the language of Pantone.
