Pantone, well known worldwide for its colour guides, has added two new guides to its Pantone Plus Series, one for designers to work with and another for those new to the Pantone system.
The new Pantone Plus Series Designer Field Guide includes wider colour swatches—twice the width of traditional Pantone guides—and tear-out chips of all 1,341 Pantone Solid Colours. The Designer Field Guide, available on both coated and uncoated text-weight stock, allows designers to attach colours to artwork and transportable files to ensure exact communication across a workflow. Each Designer Field Guide also comes with a neoprene carrying case.
The new Pantone Plus Series Starter Guide is a sampler of select colours (543 Pantone colours in total) from each of the Pantone Plus Series Colour libraries including Pastels and Neons (coated/uncoated), Premium Metallics (coated), Classic Metallics (coated) and Solid Colours (coated/uncoated). The guide is designed to introduce students, or anyone new to design, to the Pantone Colour System.
“With the two new additions to the Pantone Plus Series, we’ve created the perfect companion for seasoned design professionals and an ideal colour resource for students just starting down the path of design discovery,” said Giovanni Marra, director of corporate marketing at Pantone, in a release.
Both new guides will become available for purchase on June 30th at the Pantone website and at Pantone resellers. The Designer Field Guides can be purchased for US$99 each or US$169 for the uncoated/coated set. The Starter kit sells for US$49.
Every Plus Series purchase also includes the ability to download Pantone’s Color Manager Software free of charge, upon registration.
