As a leader in innovative and experiential technology and art, we are proud to present a virtual immersive experience on this aspirational color pairing – one that honors the wisdom of the past, looks to the future and welcomes hopeful change.

“PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray + PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating convey a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting.”


According to Pantone, Illuminating is a bright and cheerful yellow sparkling with vivacity, a warming yellow shade imbued with solar power. Whereas Ultimate Gray is emblematic of solid and dependable elements which are everlasting and provide a firm foundation.

These two independent colors that come together to create an aspirational color pairing, conjoining deeper feelings of thoughtfulness with the optimistic promise of a sunshine filled day. Learn more.
