Living Coral #16-1546; Pantone’s annual Color of the Year honors in 2019 go to “Living Coral”. Although this color’s inspiration is easily apparent, we’re not just referring to the underwater species that inhabits the ocean’s many reefs.
This colorful yearly tradition guides the leading designers across realms, including fields like fashion design, web design, and interior decoration. The previous year’s winners included:
Ultra Violet (2018)
Rose Quartz & Serenity (2016)
If you watch for it this year, you may begin to notice Living Coral in clothing stores and advertising. It could be the next ‘it’ color for nail design on Pinterest or may begin to crop up as an accent color on your favourite websites...
Living Coral is usually described as youthful, fun, exciting, energetic, and fresh. This announcement indicates that this year should be filled by warm and vibrant colors, one of the hottest website design trends of 2019.
Living Coral works as a primary or accent color, and is best combined with soft aqua, navy blue, or toned down by neutrals such as white, greys, and taupes.
All this said, what does this mean for the web design community? How can we incorporate this bold colour into our designs? Here are 15 inspiring designs to get your creative juices flowing or to inspire your next website design.
