The selection of two independent colors highlight how different elements come together to express a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting, conveying the idea that it’s not about one color or one person, it’s about more than one. The union of an enduring Ultimate Gray with the vibrant yellow Illuminating expresses a message of positivity supported by fortitude,” “Practical and rock solid but at the same time warming and optimistic, this is a color combination that gives us resilience and hope.

Pantone is a bible, a reference for any art designer and professional who use it. Beyond this deep explanation, it depends on what people feel with Grey and yellow colors. Laurie Pressman, the Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute added that "The Pantone Color of the Year reflects what is taking place in our global culture, expressing what people are looking for that color can hope to answer. As society continues to recogniez color as a critical form of communication, and a wya to symbolize thought and ideas, many designers and brands are embracing the language of color to engage and connect."
