2021 Color of the Year
Pantone announced that it had chosen two colors of the year for 2021: Ultimate Gray and Illuminating, a combination of dull, familiar gray and the bright yellow of lemon skin. It’s a choice for the past year of quarantine, a time in which we had to insulate ourselves from the world and curl up in monochrome blankets at home: “It’s a dependable gray,” as Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, told the New York Times.
The gray of cloudy skies, sidewalk cement, comfortable bed linens, gravity blankets, or low-light screens—the color evokes our collective experiences over the past year. It’s a depressing summation: During nine months of quarantine, we’ve certainly arrived at the “ultimate gray,” a state of mind—mush—as much as the color of a product. Grayness means ambiguity and irresolution. Neither black nor white, it doesn’t point toward an ending, just the continuation of an indefinite period. With coronavirus cases still mounting in the United States, that’s certainly where we’re at. To learn more and even get some instagram filters using these colors of 2021 visit pantone.com

Digital marketing is the process of promoting brands and businesses, as well as products and services, using digital platforms – like websites and social media – to drive consumer traffic and lead generation. It serves as a convenient tool to create awareness about a brand and its products or services, but also to build relationships with consumers. Digital marketing involves using different mediums like social media platforms, display ads, search engine marketing (SEM)/search engine optimization (SEO), email marketing, content marketing, influencer marketing, and many more. Due to globalization and increased access to internet technology, it’s now very easy for businesses to reach their target audience, regardless of their geographical location.
