If you're not already aware, Pantone release a selection of colours that influence colour trends across everything from furniture and fashion to graphic design. When first announced I immediately began to analyse how Greenery, the colour of 2017, could be applied. How could it be used in every day life and incorporated into my graphic design work. My first thought was to take inspiration from the natural environment around us. We have never needed to connect more with mother nature than we do in today's world. Many overlook our surrounding environment and the way in which our lifestyle choices indirectly affect it. By simply placing a highlight on this shade of green for 2017, Pantone has already opened a discussion into reconnecting with the world around us.
As a colour I often stray away from, I look forward to the challenge of incorporating this colour into my everyday life and graphic design work this year. I suppose as a small resolution for the new year I aim to purchase products that have been produced ethically and add to my growing (pun intended) plant collection.
How will colour affect you in 2017?
