Pantone's Color of the Year for 2012

It's that time again - time for something that I still can't believe is a big deal - Pantone has declared the Color of the Year to be "Tangerine Tango,"

Read all about it:

The official color is a super-saturated red-orange. I have to say, I haven't particularly noticed the trend. Last year, the bright pink that they called "Honeysuckle" (which I will forever call "carnation pink" thanks to the Crayola boxes of my childhood) was EVERYWHERE. You could look through the junk mail, and half of it was pink! I thought to myself, "Wow, maybe Pantone is really trend-connected." Now I'm not so sure - I guess I'll wait to see if my junk mail will start to be orange.
