Each year, the color experts at Pantone reveal their color of the year; a snapshot of the hues they see featuring in our culture and society, serving as an expression of our global mood and attitude.
For 2017, the brand has chosen Greenery. According to Pantone Color Institute’s Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman, the shade “symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.” She went on to say that “the tangy yellow-green speaks to our desire to express, explore, experiment and reinvent, imparting a sense of buoyancy.”
Featuring as a prominent color in tech start-up branding, botanical-inspired home décor and as a key accent in fashion design color palettes, this organic, vibrant hue is set to take the world by storm in the new year. We’ve selected our pick of the best images on Adobe Stock that encapsulate all things green.
