Emerald – The colour for 2013

Being a design student, a knowledge of trend and colour is essential. So when Pantone unveiled their colour of the year for 2013, I was excited to see it was my favourite colour green – PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald to be specific.

Pantone describes the colour as “Lively. Radiant. Lush. A colour of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony”

I have to agree. I absolutely love emerald and look forward to seeing the wide range of designs created within the spectrum.

A reaction to environmental issues and initiatives perhaps?

Below are Pantone’s examples of how emerald may influence design.
