The Pantone Colour System has been a renowned authority on colour for more than 47 years and has been an inspiration for design professionals since its development.
The system was created by Lawrence Herbert, in 1963, and he created a system that enabled professionals to identify, match and communicate colours and solve the issue of producing accurate colours within the graphic design industry. His insight that the spectrum is seen and interpreted differently by each individual led to the innovation of the PANTONE® MATCHING SYSTEM®, a book of standardized colour in fan format.
Pantone has continued to expand its colour matching system concept and is now used for example within industry, fashion, home, digital technology and architecture and is a vital tool for these industries for accurate colour communication.
Each year Pantone sell design licensees in over 100 countries and many products are designed based on their system. We love the Pantone mugs with their single block colour bringing simplicity and chic design together.
