About the collection
There are two key colour collections in the Pantone Colour Trend Report 2022:
The Spring/Summer 2022 London Colour Palette
Featuring a range of colourful, complementary hues, the London Colour Palette has a playful appeal that is perfect for creating clean, modern designs in everything from clothing to packaging. Pastel tones are typical of youthful lifestyle brands today, with Glossier, Living Proof and others embracing sweet pastels.
The Spring/Summer 2022 Core Classics
Meanwhile, the Core Classics range is a little more muted, but equally stylish nonetheless – you can see how these shades will easily make their way into people’s homeware and decor choices. These neutral shades have a more natural look, which can be the perfect pairing for any lifestyle brand.
Using the Pantone collection for your packaging designs
The Pantone Shades of 2022 align perfectly with the latest packaging design trends, which embrace include artistic expressions and simplistic details. Colour blocking is another popular trend that lends itself to this mix of pastel and earth tones, creating striking looks that are sure to draw the eye.
Pantone and glass decoration – the perfect pairing
Now, what about Pantone and glass decoration? A touch of Pantone can be just what you need to make your products stand out, making it not only about what’s on the inside, but the outside that counts. Choosing shades from the Pantone Colour Palette means your products can be right on-trend. From cosmetics to skincare and home fragrance products, having products that look as good as they perform means they won’t be hidden away in a cupboard or drawer – they’ll take pride of place in your customers’ homes.
If it’s glass decoration you’re looking for, we can help. We can decorate your glass packaging to match any Pantone colour reference, with a range of finishes. Colours can be sprayed onto colour, matt and gloss finishes and feature labelling or further printing on top.
The good news is that decorated glass is still fully recyclable, helping you provide sustainable, reusable products to your customers.
