Now that's a very sweet and colour. My kinda colour.
So the question is .....what exactly IS 'Tangerine Orange'? According to Pantone's press release:
“Tangerine Tango, a spirited reddish orange, continues to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward.”
“Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.”For more information about 2012 Pantone Colour of the Year, please visit: http://www.pantone.co.uk/pages/pantone/Pantone.aspx?pg=20821&ca=4
Now that is very powerful. So watch out all designers in all fields (anyone interested in colours actually) there will be vibrant splashes of Tangerine Tango everywhere.
I think this tangerine orange will renew and lift our spirits in the New Year. All the doom and gloom of the state of the economy this past year certainly we need a bright, reddish and energetic colour.
