PANTONE have announced the 2020 Color of the Year to be Classic Blue! In thinking about blue and how it forms so much of nature around us, I decided to take inspiration from the blue skies for this series of color palettes.

But of course, skies are never just blue. They are an amazing array of colors – from pinks and purples, to browns and yellows – so I’ve created this set of 25 color palettes inspired by spectacular skies, with the PANTONE Classic Blue Color of the Year as the initial inspiration.

But before I show you the new palettes, here’s a look at PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue.
