Marsala is the new black in 2015 Pantone colour world

Are you a business looking to spice up your brand’s design with a fresh, new hue in the New Year? Are you tired of the same, bland colour you’ve been donning for the past decade? Here at The Printed Bag Shop, we’ve got the lowdown on which shade will be taking the world by storm in 2015, and why you should be taking note for your colour decision-making when it comes to the design of your printed bags.

What is Pantone Colour and why does it apply to me?

Before we get started on which shade is topping the colour charts this year, it’s important to understand what Pantone Colour is, and why it applies to you as a business. Pantone is a standardised colour matching system, which makes sure artwork is produced in the way it was meant to be done. The Pantone Colour guide provides you with a correct way of selecting the colour(s) that are right for your brand and also ensures reproduction of colours is accurate in printing.

Marsala has been crowned Pantone Colour of the Year for 2015 – and it’s not hard to see why. Described as a ‘naturally robust and earthy wine red’, this elegant, full-bodied shade makes a statement, whether it’s used on its own or as a strong accent to other colours.

A great colour for whatever sector your business is in, this hearty and stylish tone translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors, and is appealing to every industry; making it a fantastic choice for use within your business’s design.
