A word from the people behind your favourite colour provider, Pantone.
In 1963, Lawrence Herbert, Pantone's founder, created an innovative system of identifying, matching and communicating colors to solve the problems associated with producing accurate colour matches in the graphic arts community. His insight that the spectrum is seen and interpreted differently by each individual led to the innovation of the PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM®, a book of standardized colour in fan format.
The Pantone colour guide is a essential tool for most professionals in the visual arts. However, little did we know that the most accurate colour matching system in the market relies on the human eye.
