Pantone is marking its 50th anniversary with the launch of a subscription trend service devoted solely to color. Pantoneview.com promises to give users information and inspiration about what colors are on trend, and color forecasting for all those working in creative services. There's a free 30 day trial, and the service costs $24.95 monthly or $169.95 annually.
Also for the anniversary, Pantone has created a fun infographic tracing iconic movements in color over the last five decades. Swatches of different Pantone color represent the sixties, seventies, eighties, nineties and 2000s, while you can also take a look back at Pantone's colors of the year since 2000, and a selection of the most popular colors used by brands.
