To begin, ‘Classic Blue’ instantly denotes a tone of being perfectly plain, traditional and (like the name suggests) classic. This brings with it a sense of comfort, familiarity and calm. Especially compared to the more vibrant (and arguably controversial) Pantone colour of 2019 which was ‘Living Coral’. But in the vein of website design, shades of blue are hugely prevalent throughout already. Take for example how most links within text are presented – in a classic blue colour (that turns purple) after you click on them. Even our very own logo incorporates a shade of blue. Such is the universal appeal of this primary colour that it can seamlessly work in a variety of scenarios.
But just because a company assigns a colour like this, should we take much heed of it? The answer is yes in the sense that this colour choice is based on their predictions and forecasts of the upcoming creative, environmental and even political spheres for the year ahead. With this, they foresee the colour ‘Classic Blue’ as “a colour that anticipates what’s going to happen next.” This is fitting for many reasons and so when we examine the aspect of content being ‘on-trend’, we can expect to see this blue in many places throughout the year ahead. Therefore those seeking a modern and slick website attuned to visitors knowledgeable of current affairs may very well want ‘Classic Blue’ to feature within it.
