Dig Deeper: Peach Fuzz

PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz.

Color Culture 

The 2024 Pantone Color of the Year is Peach Fuzz (PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz to be exact!) The Pantone Color System provides a “universal language of color” to help individuals “define, communicate and control color from inspiration to realization – across various materials and finishes for graphics, fashion and product design.” Since 1999, Pantone selects a color to feature each year in the hopes of showcasing “the fundamental role color plays in our shared human experience.” Team members of the Pantone Color Institute choose the winning color after a year-long selection process. Check out this interview with Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute, for more information on the Pantone Color of the Year selection process.

Kindness and comfort are two prominently featured words associated with the 2024 Pantone Color of the Year. Peace is another word that embodies the winning color selection. “PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz is a velvety gentle peach whose all-embracing spirit enriches heart, mind, and body… At a time of turmoil in many aspects of our lives, our need for nurturing, empathy and compassion grows ever stronger as does our imaginings of a more peaceful future.” Check out all the ways you can use the color of the year on Pantone’s website.

Peaches, Peaches, Peaches, Peaches, Peaches People

Peach is Falvey’s unofficial color of the year as the library hosted many stress-busting events that featured numerous characters from Nintendo’s Mario franchise including Princess Peach. Giving a subtle shoutout to the pink-loving ruler of the Mushroom Kingdom, we had to gave away candy peach rings. To continue the celebration of all things peach, stop by the library’s first floor to grab a free package of peach rings.
