Artists create with Pantone’s Color of the Year – ‘Greenery’

Every year, Pantone, advocates of creating the language of color, have chosen Greenery (PANTONE 15-0343) as the color of the year for 2017.

What PANTONE has to say about this gorgeously refreshing color, reminiscent of matcha tea, kiwi fruit, avocado, and vibrant green apples.

A life-affirming shade, Greenery is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality.

Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.

Pantone’s color choice is versatile, a “nature’s neutral”, a “trans-seasonal” color that compliments many color combinations.

Greenery is nature’s neutral. The more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world. This shift is reflected by the proliferation of all things expressive of Greenery in daily lives through urban planning, architecture, lifestyle and design choices globally. A constant on the periphery, Greenery is now being pulled to the forefront – it is an omnipresent hue around the world.

As you, dear Redbubble artists, begin to plan out your designs for 2017, you may want to take this color trend into consideration. Buyers often reflect on what is trending and may be looking for a bit of ‘Greenery’ to compliment their attire and homes.
