“A warm, engaging yellow,” says Pantone about Mimosa, its 2009 Color of the Year. “In a time of economic uncertainty and political change, optimism is paramount and no other color expresses hope and reassurance more than yellow.”
New Jersey–based Pantone creates color definitions. By using the Pantone Color Matching System, professionals who use color are assured their tones match identical tones no matter where they appear.
