Pantone, the global authority on colour and provider of professional colour tools for designers, has introduced an expanded array of colour to the Pantone Matching System (PMS), to create a library of over 2,100 colours. Pantone provides a universal language of colour that enables colour-critical decisions through every stage of the workflow for brands.

The addition of new colours creates a library of improved cross-referencing to Pantone’s Fashion, Home + Interiors (FHI) system and allows for more design flexibility throughout the production and supply chain.

Marking the first addition of colours to the Pantone Matching System since 2016, these new colours offer graphic and product designers, brands, printers, converters and ink manufacturers unique benefits for every creative and professional need, and an even more seamless process to transition from between physical and digital mediums. Combining the stability and consistency of physical Pantone colour guides and the expansive, easily cross-referenced digital Pantone colour libraries, this new expansion offers users the opportunity to create truly cross-platform designs from inspiration to production, allowing them to colour with confidence, according to Pantone.

Key features from the addition of these new colours for PMS includes trend-relevant colours with tighter production links. The addition of basic colours (neutrals, tans, grays, navy, blacks) allows for additional achievability of colours throughout the design process while maintaining close proximity to upcoming trends.

The new colours offer colour accuracy. The latest Pantone colour guides are the most stable and consistent printed colours, matching the master standard digital data with all-new and updated cross-referenced data for closer parity between physical and digital formats. Designers can access all PMS colours, including the addition of all-new 294 PMS colours and all FHI colours, in real-time through the Pantone Extension for Adobe Creative Cloud available through the Adobe Exchange for Creative Cloud Marketplace.

Designers will now be able to access and use the most up-to-date Pantone colour libraries right within the latest version of Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop. A new Pantone Extension for Adobe Creative Cloud allows users to search both PMS and FHI colour systems to easily convert CMYK, RGB, and Hex values to Pantone colours. In addition, users are able to build colour palettes of Pantone colours that can be saved and stored, allowing creative teams to share and re-use colour palettes when using the extension in Adobe Creative Cloud.

“We are always attuned to the changing market and the needs of our creative customers. As a result, we are excited to create an even more efficient workflow as we roll out new colours for the graphic arts and improved cross-referencing between Pantone’s PMS and FHI colour systems. Adding the launch of the Pantone Extension for Adobe Creative Cloud to this mix will enhance the ability to identify, communicate and verify colours both physically and digitally in the Pantone universe,” Adrián Fernández, vice president and general manager of Pantone said.
