Pantone is the leading authority on color and determines color standards for professionals who then design clothing, products, spaces and all that is influenced by color. They search carefully among the entertainment industry, traveling art, films in production, popular new artists and traveling destinations, as well as technology, sporting events and textures that impact color. Pantone then chooses a color based on several influences and Emerald Green has been deemed the 2013 Color of the Year.
“Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony,” is how Pantone described Emerald in a recent press release.
It is the color of growth and prosperity, showing regeneration more than any other hue. It also represents unity and healing. “Green is the most abundant hue in nature – the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute®.
