Color the World: A Gallery of Pantone Inspiration

Ask almost any designer about custom colors and the name that will probably be waiting on the tips of their tongues would be Pantone. Such a rich selection of patented hues rest under the Pantone umbrella, but their reach does not end there. Far from it, in fact. Pantone's custom color service has given brands the world over the ability to coordinate in style. Today we are turning that inspirational spotlight towards the wide reach of influence that Pantone has had over designers the world over. Below is a collection of both concepts and fully realized products that have been modeled after and honors the Pantone brand. We hope you find this as inspiring a collection as we do.

  1. Every designer will know about the Pantone color. The main advantage on using Pantone is the color reproduction will be identical.
