Happiness is a Warm Yellow (+Gray)

The color gods have spoken: following a impoverished year on so many levels, the Pantone Color Institute proclaimed that 2021 serves up not just 1, but 2 colors in a combo platter of "happiness supported by fortitude."

There is a science and entire cultural and design machine behind the annual color choice. In this case, the need for brightness and hope—"essential to the human spirit," Pantone notes—comes in the way of infusing our lives with a bit of PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and PANTONE 13-0647.
