Established in 1963 (Pantone Matching System, PMS) by Lawrence Herbert, Pantone is the global authority for colour communication and inspiration. An iconic and trusted colour trend forecasting brand, acting as a reference point for over 10 million designers and producers worldwide, Pantone has been creating colour chips for more than half a century.

Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute says; “We are living in a time that requires trust and faith. It is this kind of constancy and confidence that is expressed by PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue, a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on. Imbued with a deep resonance, Classic Blue provides an anchoring foundation. A boundless blue evocative of the vast and infinite evening sky, Classic Blue encourages us to look beyond the obvious to expand out thinking; challenging us to think more deeply, increase our perspective and open the flow of communication.”
