Back in December Pantone announced that ‘Living Coral’ was their Colour of the Year 2019. Its been a popular choice (you may have noticed it all over social media and in magazines!). Here at Owl Design HQ we are definitely fans of this vibrant, happy colour. It is already up on our mood board for 2019 and we can't wait to use it in some shape or form in up coming projects. Here are a few images to get you on the mood:
