Pantone Color of the Year

The Pantone Color Institute was established by Pantone in 1986 to forecast future color direction and study how color influences human emotion, most notably through its annual Color of the Year program. After 16 years, the PANTONE Color of the Year had emerged as a fun pop culture announcement, with media, consumers and the design industry looking for a splash of color to set a tone for the new year — but coverage often failed to connect the selection to the true intelligence offered by the global color authority or articulate Pantone’s business model. The 2016 unveiling marked a momentous occasion: for the first time, Pantone selected two colors for its Color of the Year: Serenity and Rose Quartz.

KWT Global Volunteers at New York Common Pantry

On September 21, 2018, the KWT Global NYC team volunteered at the New York Common Pantry to join in on its efforts to reduce hunger throughout the New York City area.
September 30, 2018
Did you know that nearly
1.4 million people in New York City are living in food insecure households? It seems contradictory to think, in a city home to some of the wealthiest individuals in the world, that a large population struggles with hunger. Unfortunately, the reality is that many New Yorkers are unsure of where their next meal will come from. On September 21, 2018, for its annual Purpose Day, the KWT Global NYC team volunteered at the New York Common Pantry to join in on its efforts to reduce hunger throughout the New York City area. The New York Common Pantry’s primary mission is to “work towards the reduction of hunger and food insecurity,” while promoting “dignity and self-sufficiency” for its guests. In the past year, the organization served around 500,000 New Yorkers and distributed over 6 million hot meals. The organization is helping to ensure that no family has to choose between paying their electricity bill or buying groceries. At KWT Global, we are dedicated to continuing our purpose-led mission through serving our community. Working with this dedicated organization was an extremely impactful experience for our team. Volunteering at New York Common Pantry helped put the issue of food insecurity in NYC into perspective. We are grateful that we were able to help contribute to this cause.
