Color of the Year, every year

The color wizards at Pantone have reached into their magical hat for yet another Color of the Year that we will be seeing on clothing, makeup, print, packaging, and interior design all through 2015.

Meet Marsala, “a tasteful hue that embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness.”

"I'm sorry, officer. I can't remember any details of the man who broke in while we were unloading our groceries, except that he was wearing a very nice Marsala shirt..."

“I’m sorry, officer. I can’t remember any details of the man who broke in while we were unloading our groceries, except that he was wearing a very nice Marsala shirt…”

Here at Groton Pixel, we’re not advocating a hip, trendy color that will go stale after a year. For a website, your color scheme is part of your brand, and should be chosen with care to last a very long time. You need a color of every year. But we are presenting the color of the year as a springboard for your own ideas.

Did you know that a professional web designer can match Marsala, or any other color you like, to one of over 16 million colors available on the web? We can match the color of your letterhead, your eyes, a paint chip, your new Marsala-colored sweatshirt, or any given pixel in a digital image.

Did you know that a professional web designer can then combine that color with compliments that look especially nice together?

To celebrate the New Year, from now through the end of January 2015, Groton Pixel will be offering a 10% discount on any design or redesign package that includes a past or present Pantone Color of the Year:
