Pantone declares Tangerine Tango the color of 2012

Tangerine Tango office products

Today Pantone, the provider of color standards for the design industry, announced that Tangerine Tango is the color of the year for 2012. Orange is my favorite hue, so I’m delighted to learn that all the homemade cookies I mailed to the Pantone Color Institute paid off. Better luck next time, khaki! We can expect to see manufacturers of consumer products producing plenty of tangerine goodies in the next year. To add more of this red-orange hue around the office, check out these fun products, clockwise:
