Pantone has named Tangerine Tango the color of the year for 2012. I absolutely love orange in most any hue, so Tangerine Tango is a great pick in my eyes! Pantone describes this color as “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.” Have you ever heard color described like that?!
Not only has Tangerine Tango taken over in print design trends for 2012, but this color has been seen on the fashion runways, including collections from Tommy Hilfiger, Elie Tahari and Adrienne Vittadini. Although this color became very popular in spring fashion, it will surely carry into fall fashion as well.
In addition to fashion and print design, Tangerine Tango has made a splash on cosmetics and home interiors this year. Think throw pillows, accent walls, nail polish and vibrant eye shadows!
With a love for any color of orange, I found this as the perfect time to offer my first free customized stationery design. Yes, free! The Tangerine Tango customizable stationery features a spot for one large initial (on the circle) and room for one name below. Click the link below to download your customizable file. Don’t have the Kunstler Script font as used on the file? You can also download that for free, right here.
