Colour Co-ordination – Pantone colour trends 2021

with Mei Yee Leong

Selecting the right colours for your designs is essential to portraying the correct tone, mood and overall look and feel. Blue can convey harmony, tranquillity, green can convey health and vitality and yellow can convey joy and happiness. Colours should also be chosen, based on colour saturation, hue, etc. too often I see colours being chosen without these considerations. It is obvious when colours clash and mismatch, as they appear uneasy on the eye. The colours used can also apply to the stock imagery you use too. It’s important to take note of the strongest colours in the stock images, so that they match with your overall brand colours.

Have you ever taken a look at the colours you use in your collateral?

Is it cohesive, consistent and accurate in the portrayal of your brand?

Does it stand out?

Having a review of the colours and elements you use in your brand can be a healthy approach to take. Take a look at yours or contact me to start the conversation. Either way, is good 🙂

The colours you use are important and can make a huge difference in how people portray you and your brand. I myself use a lot of blues, gold and oceanic elements as I wanted to portray the harmonious power my brand brings to any business. The gold represents the stellar service any of my clients receive. Rather poetic, don’t you think?

Pantone is the industry’s leader in dictating the colours of note to utilise. If you haven’t heard of them, they develop brand and product colour strategies, forecast colour trends, and provide colour custom solutions. This year’s colours are Illuminating and Ultimate Grey. An interesting pairing that can be used individually or together. The yellow is a lovely soft tone that would work well in brands wanting to evoke happiness, joy, without being too obnoxious. The grey would work in any professional brand; a reliable, sturdy tone of grey.
