You must have heard of Pantone Colors somewhere or the other, BUT did you ever try knowing what they are? If I were asked what Pantone is, I would just reply that it was “Marsala” last year and “Rose Quartz and Serenity” this year 😛 . For a normal person this color system is of very less utility, but designers around the world consider it as their language of color. With Pantone, every color has a recognition. There are umpteen number of shades of every color which we are unaware of, we call all reds as red, pinks as pink, blues as blue but pantone has allocated names and numbers to colors for easy identification. It’s not that only pantone is considered as the color standard, there is RAL and Munsell too but Pantone is preferred more for color matching.
