World Cup affects Design

25 Jun

With all eyes on the World Cup, it is probably no accident that Pantone’s  color forecast for Fall 2010 “The Gathering” consists of African influences.

Pantone Gatherings

Pantone Gatherings Palette

“Inspired primarily by the continent of Africa with its vastness and complexities, Gatherings brings together  a    compilation of colors that demonstrate the uniqueness of the region. Artifacts and handicrafts reflect a creative boldness that is expressed in a panoply of appropriately named colors: Cypress green, Smoke Blue, Sand and Oasis mixed with the magic of Twilight Mauve, the piquancy of Lemon Curry and the heated glimmer of Copper Coin.”

Examples of palette applications.
