Design for print and web/ ISTD/ Pantone - Emerald green

As i am due to design a website that follows the theme of colour co-ordination, i thought what better way than to use the Pantone colour of the year - Emerald 17-5641 as a foundation of my website and app, its a the most trending colour out there in the realm of design and completely suits what my challenge is. 

Here a few screen shots from the Pantone website these show how the colour is being displayed in different ways.

Pantone Names Emerald as Color of The Year for 2013

Green is the most abundant hue in naturethe human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum,” Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, said in a press release. “It’s also the color of growth, renewal and prosperity no other color conveys regeneration more than green. For centuries, many countries have chosen green to represent healing and unity.”
The firm characterized emerald as “vivid, verdant” and “promoting balance and harmony,” according to the release. In contrast, 2012′s  “spirited” hue Tangerine Tango “provided the energy boost we needed to recharge and move forward.”
