“The colours that are influencing design today have evolved to reflect shifting societal views, new technological innovations, and a truly global outlook,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

Pantone Connect, a colour library and palette management ecosystem, can be integrated directly within design tools like Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign to provide final delivery of colour into design files. Each of the colours in the Pantone Fashion, Home + Interiors Library is supported by spectral data in both QTX and CXF format, further accelerating product speed to market and providing quick access to other colour values including RGB and L*a*b*.
