What is Pantone and Why does it matter?

The Pantone Color System is the world’s most widely used colour matching system. In 1963, the technique was created to address the issue of varied colour matching in the printing industry.

Lawrence Herbert, an American chemist, created a technique to standardise colour in 1963, and each shade’s exact formula was specified. This formula ensured that the colour remained consistent regardless of changes in light, medium, or even perceptions. Pantone, Herbert’s company, was founded on this system. The name is self-explanatory: “pan” means “all,” and “tone” means “colour.”

With the use of colour collection in a fan style, Pantone quickly became the easiest and simplest way to classify, discuss, and match colours.

To categorize each colour, a number was assigned to each tone and tint. Pantone was the first to publish a book on colour matching. Pantone has since been the go-to colour pairing method for the design industry, for well over 40 years.

The Pantone Color Institute provides an opportunity for designers, marketers, producers, and businesses to collaborate and create a strong and impactful colour presence. Their colour expertise is unrivalled as the leading colour matching system. They are experts in the impact of colour on not only design but also customer behaviour. Based on the industry Pantone has two color systems – The Pantone Matching System (PMS), and The Pantone Fashion, Home + Interiors (FHI) system.

Pantone guarantees that the colour you choose is the same as the one you saw on the sample or in the showroom. Pantone is increasingly used by interior designers not just for standardised colours, but also for inspired palettes that influence all aspects of design. It has globally become a go-to for the innumerable shades and meanings of colour in human life.

Pantone’s annual Color of the Year does more than simply define the next 12 months with a timely hue or shade. It inspires designers to incorporate the color in a number of fascinating ways.
