Pantone Unveils Goe System with Over 2,000 New Colors
The PANTONE Goe System includes the PANTONE GoeGuide(TM), PANTONE GoeSticks(TM) and an advanced, intuitive software toolset for palette creation called myPANTONE Palettes.
Presented in fan-guide format, the PANTONE GoeGuide is the primary tool for selecting and communicating the 2,058 PANTONE Goe System Colors. Seven colors are represented per page, and each color is identified by a unique number along with its ink mixing formula and RGB values. To avoid confusion, the PANTONE Goe System uses a new three-part numbering system that is different from the PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM.
All 2,058 colors in PANTONE Goe System are available in a two-volume set of adhesive-backed color chips, six for each color, allowing designers to peel off a chip and place it where they want without using staples, glue or tape.
PANTONE GoeSticks also includes a PANTONE palette playground for use as a test area to experiment with the chips. Once a color palette is finalized, the chips can be permanently placed onto one of 30 PANTONE palette cards supplied with the book for easy sharing and reference.
myPANTONE Palettes is an interactive color workspace that provides an easy and engaging platform for selecting and working with colors. It integrates into any application that supports system level color pickers. There are multiple ways for designers to select colors through the software:
• Color Pickers
• PANTONE Palettes
• Eye-dropper Tool
• Color Blender
• Color Schemes
• Image Palette Builder
Defining, Saving and Exporting Color Palettes
After selecting individual colors, users can drag and drop them within the myPalettes area to create a color palette. They also have the ability to view any saved palettes, print, export, organize and lock palettes, as well as edit individual color properties.
Endless Collaboration and Exploration
The myPANTONE.com Web site is an online community that allows color enthusiasts to post their own palettes or search community-posted palettes. Color trends and forecast palettes created by industry professionals will also be available.
