The MANTONE Official brand was created by Emily Skublics, a graphic designer based in Toronto, Canada.
In 2017, Emily noticed the year's popular colours being named after unrelatable, irrelevant things - was the year really full of rose quartz and serenity? She wondered about naming colours after the things she saw around her: masculinity so fragile the colour pink is an affront, a gender pay gap closing too slowly giving men more green than the rest, a man's blue denim-clad legs spreading wide on the morning commute.
The MANTONE Official collection reflects this thought exercise. These are the colours of life in a man's world.
