12 Jan 2017 Pantone colors for Spring & Summer
I’m crazy for colors, you know that. So I want to write about the 10 Pantone colors for 2017 spring & summer right now, at the beginning of the year.
Even if you are in the wedding business, photography, design, jewelry, handmade products or any creative freelancing job; you may need to keep these colors in mind.
This is an image extracted from Pantone’s website, but I want to go beyond it. I’m pretty excited with the selection from this year because it showcases bright and vibrant tones. I remember past years having too many dark and neutral colors for spring and summer, and although we all know neutrals are more attractive to customers; spring and summer are the perfect seasons for bright and happy colors!
In the image you will only find the Pantone references, but if you don’t own a Pantone you will need their RGB and CMYK references to use them on your projects.
I’ve done the work for you, which you can download right away from this link:
So for the next weeks and months I plan to share some moldboards to inspire you on how to use these colors. I will combine them in couples to show you how you can apply them to your branding styles.
The first combination I want to share is the Pale Dogwood with the Niagara; nude pink with denim blue; a soft combination for the last days of winter and beginning of spring.
If you want to use these colors in your designs or pictures, feel free to download my free resource with the Pantone colors in RGB and CMYK modes here:
So, now that you know one of my favorite combinations for the year is time to ask you:
which two colors from the Pantone Spring selection do you like the most and why?
