Pantone Announces 2017 Color of the Year!

It's official, 2017 is the year to make other schools green with envy about your yearbook. Pantone has announced "Greenery" as the official Color Of The Year. According to Pantone, "Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew."

Aside from feeling fresh and new, this shade looks pretty cool in quite a few different color palettes.

Those color combos not quite your school's cup of tea? How about taking advantage of the professionally designed covers and layout templates available to you within Pictavo? This collection uses basic black and white with a pop of green. So cool!

Still not 'sold' on the idea of using green in your yearbook? Don't forget all of the pieces in the above layout templates are editable...meaning you can change them to match your school colors!

Playing around with some bright hues in your yearbook layouts can be fun and you may be surprised at what your staff ends up falling in love with...even if it isn't the color of the year.

Fall Pantone Colors for 2014

As you pick your yearbook theme for this year and move into designing the pages, we thought it would be helpful to show you the colors that are trending for 2014 this fall. We love the deep rich hues and purples/pinks! Not too girly, they are balanced with some much more masculine blues and almost 1970s shades of green, gold and brown. We've included the matching RGB colors from the Pictavo Color Palette so you can design your book using these hot fall colors! What a fun palette to choose from! Which are your favorite?

We love colors! So before summer "officially" hits our calendars this month, we thought we would share Pantone's Fashion Color Report for Spring 2014. Many of the colors for mens and womens overlap but you'll see a little deeper hues in some of the mens.

Which of these colors have you brought into your closet already!? And which are your favorite to pair together?
