INTRODUCING Pantone 3275 C
Pantone 3275 C is a blue green that can be cool when placed next to blues or warm when placed next to oranges. A versatile color, it is a reminder of better things just on the horizon.
Don’t expect to find the bluish-green shade of Island Fantasy in nature, though it does lend itself to the color of the Caribbean. When the Island Fantasy color does appear in nature, it is usually for a moment. One moment you may think you are looking at blue and the next, a shade of green as light dances around. This creates a subtle, but complex feeling of depth, warmth and excitement.
In society, green represent harmony through acceptance, wealth, and nature. Furthermore, blue represents perfection through knowledge, success, and security. By combining these two colors, we get a vibrant color full of hope and promise.
LABEL DESIGN WITH Pantone 3275 C
Such a dramatic color will appear vibrant when printed on your next label project. To ensure a designer does not visually overwhelm a consumer, consider a limited palette and the use of a Rich Black, such as Pantone Black 6 C or the use of Digital White or a white substrate.
Gradients and monochrome palettes are great choices when designing this Island Fantasy to add complexity to a label without overwhelming the design with too much contrast. By introducing shades or tints, you limit the color palette but introduce some variation.
If you want to really draw attention to your label design, consider adding red or dark pink, such as Pantone 227C Jazzberry Jam. Reds and pinks are opposite on the color wheel and will pop on a store shelf. Just be careful not to overuse.
Color can also be linked to health. Pantone 3275 can be linked to wellness, nature, and cleanliness. By introducing blues and greens into your label design, you can align your product and brand messaging with your consumer’s habits and personal goals.
