2013 pantone calendar by pentagram
published by abrams, the pantone 2013 calendar re-contextualizes the familiar PMS chips
into colorful ‘digitized’ images for each month. the ‘pixels’ of the images resemble the chips,
with colors identified as specific PMS numbers.
pantone also forecasts an official ‘color’ for the coming year (emerald 17-5641 is the color of 2013)
and the calendar similarly selects a hue for each month. the grid of the wall calendar looks
like a series of pantone color chips, with the days of the month ranging through the shades
of the featured color. in the engagement calendar these shades appear along the side, like a specifier.
