fourteen years of pantone colors-of-the-year (tecznotes)

fourteen years of pantone colors-of-the-year (tecznotes): "2000: Cerulean Blue.

This color represents the millennium because of the calming zen state of mind it induces. Blue is known to be a calming color.

In addition, it makes the unknown a little less frightening because the sky, which is a presence in our lives every day, is a constant and is always there,” Eiseman said."
