From the dewy meadows of Greenery, to the vast cosmos of Ultra Violet, this 2019 we are diving deep to the vibrant reefs of Tubbataha as Pantone Color Institute has declared this optimistic coral hue with a golden undertone as 2019’s Color of the Year convincing our worn out souls to embrace the coming year through rose-tinted glasses. True to its name, Living Coral, is an animated shade of rose and a touch of golden orange; a tone which instantly sets the mood and warms the soul once perceived by the naked eyes.


Pantone, a well-renowned global authority on color based on New Jersey, has been altering and influencing the way products are developed and the manner on which consumers decide which goods to purchase over the last 20 years. From fashion, home furnishings, industrial design, as well as technologies, packaging, and graphic design, this color authority turned pop culture icon has contributed a lot in forecasting global color trends and shaping brand visual identities of this generation.

"When I think color, I think Pantone."

The emergence of social media and digital technology has changed the way people live their lives for all eternity. The convenience these innovations hold coupled with severe repercussions has forced those overdosing on social media to turn to nature for some inner cleansing and a peace of mind. Pantone, known for selecting colors anchored on socioeconomic conditions and a series of seasonal trend forecasts and color psychology, has opted for a more vibrant and nurturing color this 2019 which not only materializes in our natural surroundings but is also a viral tone within the social media sphere.

"In reaction to the onslaught of digital technology and social media increasingly embedding into daily life, we are seeking authentic and immersive experiences that enable connection and intimacy," Pantone shares on their news release today.

For those tired of monochromatic tones and their dull lives, Living Coral is a “sociable and spirited” color that welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity that will surely boost your dead beat spirits after an emotional roller coaster ride of ups and downs this 2017. Pantone sympathizes with everyone’s hunger for optimistic and joyful pursuits. If happiness is truly a choice, Pantone wants you to know that Living Coral is the living epitome of this psychological desire.

"Color is an equalizing lens through which we experience our natural and digital realities, and this is particularly true for Living Coral. With consumers craving human interaction and social connection, the humanizing and heartening qualities displayed by the convivial Pantone Living Coral hit a responsive chord," Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.

Living Coral is a playful shade which casts light on the social reality that if we only pay more attention to nature with our undivided attention, somewhere beneath the great depths of the sea, a vivifying and effervescent color emitted by these divine marine invertebrate can mesmerize the eye and the mind more than what the superficial entertainment that our mobile phones lure us with.

"Lying at the center of our naturally vivid and chromatic ecosystem, PANTONE Living Coral is evocative of how coral reefs provide shelter to a diverse kaleidoscope of color."

Moreover, Living Coral is a subliminal yet artistic shade which reminds us to place more value on the beauty of the vast ocean along with the critters that find shelter in it. The stunning color of the Living Coral should be a reminder of the ecological contribution to our ecosystem of these stunning aquatic creatures and to put an end to human-induced climate change which leads to ocean acidification and coral bleaching.
