Classic Blue Inspiration – 2020 Pantone Color Of The Year


For the Rachael Ellen Events and Kenzie Victory workshop during October in Paris, France, I was asked to create an invitation suite for this intimate elopement editorial on the Seine. For this editorial I knew I wanted to play around with a classic but fresh color palette, clean lines, and custom monogram details. Little did I know the classic blue color palette I selected would later become the 2020 Pantone Color of the Year!

I truly love this color and hope to see more of it in invitation suites this coming year. The hue is classic yet fresh, confident yet calming, and oh so timeless. Curious of ways to incorporate this elegant color into your suite? Try using it as the envelope color or name card paper like shown here. Classic blue would also be a lovely color to letterpress any suite in!
