Only 336 new Pantone colors. Sigh.May 4, 2012
Pantone® has released 336 new colors into its Pantone Matching System Plus Series, bringing the series total to 1,677 colors. Anda had big plans to work 337 new colors into a design project, but we just couldn’t complete our vision without that extra special color. Back to the drawing board.
Even without that extra special 337th color, we can still appreciate the new additions. The colors expand the book’s broad range of saturation, including pastels, neutrals, deep hues and brights. Subtle differences in color can make big differences in design, so we welcome the new color options.
