Tangerine Tango

Bring in the New Year with a “Tangerine Tango”

Get ready for 2012 to be the year of the “Tangerine Tango.”  No, we are not talking about dancing, although that could be fun too, we are talking about COLOR. Pantone just announced this spicy citrus to officially set the retail temperature for the coming year and to dominate all other color trends at market.

“Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it,” says Pantone executive director Leatrice Eisema. “Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.” Allow the oncoming wave of citrus orange crush to lift your mood and heighten your creative energy. Incorporate it into your work, your home, your creations and watch them dance!
