A famous name in the fashion, product and graphic design industries, Pantone is the go-to brand for all things colour. Here's what you need to know, plus how you can get your own Pantone classic from Copenhagen Design

1. It’s an iconic brand with a great design history

Since 1963, its iconic Pantone Colour Matching System – that’s the code on the white border of any Pantone product that makes us feel like an in-the-know design pro when we’re sipping from our favourite mug – has innovated the way designers use colour. 

Fun fact: the codes are split into two categories. Fashion, Home and Interiors need more whites, blacks and neutrals in their palettes, while Graphics (for print and packaging designers) need colours that will pop on the shelf.
