One of the most exciting events for designers and everyone working in visual communication is Pantone’s annual announcement of the color of the year. Every time they surprise the world with unexpected choices. A lot of you must be wondering how do they decide on which shade or hue will make a difference in the upcoming year.

This information will probably remain a mystery for us all. But what we know for sure is that their color choice is always relevant and accurately describes the mood of the year.

For 2020, the Pantone Color Institute has selected Classic Blue (Pantone 19-4052) as the color of the year. “Instilling calm, confidence, and connection, this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era”, says Pantone.

At Depositphotos, we anticipated this and have quickly put up a collection of visuals in the trending Classic Blue shade. These photos and vectors are perfect for any kind of project you plan to work on and will translate the calmness and stability your audience will be looking for in 2020.
