Pantone Announces Latest Version of Pantone Connect

Pantone LLCThe International Paint Authority and suppliers of professional paint tools for designers, have announced the latest version Pantone connection.

The designers’ digital platform facilitates color decision-making and communication, giving access to all 15,000 Pantone colors in the cloud. Added features allow designers around the world to create digital billboards, galleries and a universal tool for direct collaboration between teams, clients and partners.

“The Pantaton product design process is very personal. Jung Sin, global director of digital product management at Pentagon, said. “With this new version of Pantone Connect, we believe we have created a unique tool that will improve how designers naturally work, and we look forward to continuing to adapt and update our tools to address that.”

The Pantone Connect platform was first launched in April 2020 and June 2020 with a Pantone color matching card and has since rapidly evolved into dynamic designer needs. In particular, to adapt to a new creative and work environment that combines physical and digital following the Covide-19 epidemic. Pantone has worked closely with some of the designers to understand the differences in the designer’s new workflow, and has updated the product to better match their needs. As a result, Panton facilitated the platform with an all-in-one tool, designers can easily combine color in the design process from start to finish. The platform is available at Adobe Extension Marketplace for use with Adobe Creative Cloud software, App Store (iOS) and Google Play (Android) as a web application for your smartphone and web browser.

The new features of Pantone Connect include the following three components:

Sensory keyboard function, Which allows users to upload digital photos on stage and automatically sync to the nearest Pantone Color Equivalent.

Creating a gallery, Which allows designers to create and store galleries securely and allows users to perceive the gallery by people with color blindness and how the gallery looks in contrast to light and dark backgrounds. And

Collaborative tools, Which allows designers to share palette information with people in the design process and to reach a common vision and accurate color interaction with teams, customers, publishers and brands.

This latest announcement builds on the company’s next strategy to increase its products and supplies, which connects consumers’ digital habits to the need to connect with the material world. To help guide this strategy forward, Panton contacted Eli Cheng, a digital design veteran, to become Panton’s new CEO. Cheng joined Panton, who has more than two decades of experience in technology, digital media, strategy, operation and finance. One of them is Schuttertock, which is responsible for the company’s ecommerce channel. Adobe has been in corporate development roles and strategic partnerships for nearly a decade.

“Now more than ever, we rely on digital communication to find inspiration and collaboration,” Cheng said. “Our focus is on expanding the digital services portfolio of services to better serve our customers and fans. I’m looking forward to it.

Pantone Connect will hold an imaginary event for designers in the industry on November 16 to discuss color in the design process. Sign up for the event over here.

Mobile apps for iOS and Android can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store respectively, while Pantone Connect Extension for Adobe Creative Cloud can be downloaded from the Adobe Creative Cloud Exchange website.
