How to: Pantone Colour of the Year 2016 was the first year that two colours were announced as Pantone Color of the Year: Rose Gold and Serenity.

As proud supporters of the LGBTQ community, Greenscape was especially excited to see two colours that represent gender equality. Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute explains the 2016 colours are “coinciding with societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity”. Loving these colours too?
