How Pantone Colors of the Year Rose Quartz and Serenity Join the Story of Web Design

Article by Awwwards Team in Design & Illustration - February 29

The blending of two shades – Rose Quartz and Serenity - the new PANTONE Color of the Year.

Rose Quartz and Serenity have been chosen as PANTONE Color of the Year 2016. Pantone explains that the colors respond to the consumer’s need for reassurance and mindfulness, while representing a growing cohesion between genders. This is the first time two colors have been bestowed the title of color of the year.
