Among designers, graphic artists and those in the know, Pantone is a method of indexing colours.
Colours can be confusing. Take, for instance, red. The word, “red”, can refer to a light, pastelly-pink kind of red, or it could be the bold, bright red of a stop sign. To avoid confusion, the Pantone system aims to classify every shade of every colour with a unique number. Really bright red, for instance, is Pantone 193. The particular shade of blue on the Scottish Flag is Pantone 300. There’s a Pantone number for every shade the human eye can see!
But the Pantone system is about so much more than just dull numbers. It’s all about passion! Which, if you ask any designer or artist, is what life is all about. So indulge in your love of colours and shop Peter's of Kensington's Pantone range.
