Improved Cross-Referencing to Pantone’s Fashion, Home + Interiors System Allows for Additional Design Flexibility Across Both Colour Libraries
Matching system complemented by new Pantone® Extension for Adobe Creative Cloud

Pantone LLC, the global authority on colour and provider of professional colour tools for designers, today introduced an expanded array of colour to the Pantone Matching System® (PMS). Bring your designs to life with 294 brand-new trend-relevant colours and a library of over 2,100 colours, including improved cross-referencing to Pantone’s Fashion, Home + Interiors (FHI) system and allows for more design flexibility throughout the production and supply chain.
Marking the first addition of colours to the Pantone Matching System since 2016, these new colours offer graphic and product designers, brands, printers, converters and ink manufacturers unique benefits for every creative and professional need and an even more seamless process to transition between physical and digital mediums. Combining the stability and consistency of physical Pantone colour guides and the expansive, easily cross-referenced digital Pantone colour libraries, this new expansion offers users the opportunity to create cross-platform designs from inspiration to production.
Key features from the addition of these new colours for PMS include:
Trend-Relevant Colours with Tighter Production Links: The addition of basic colours (neutrals, tans, greys, navy, blacks) allows for the additional achievability of colours throughout the design process while maintaining close proximity to upcoming trends.
Colour Accuracy – Down to the DNA: The latest Pantone colour guides are the most stable and consistent printed colours, matching the master standard digital data with all-new and updated cross-referenced data for closer parity between physical and digital formats.
All Pantone Colours Online and Now: Designers can access all PMS Colours, including the addition of all-new 294 PMS colours and all FHI colours, in real-time through the Pantone Extension for Adobe Creative Cloud available through the Adobe Exchange for Creative Cloud Marketplace.
We are also excited to announce that designers will now be able to access and use the most up-to-date Pantone colour libraries right within the latest version of Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop. A new Pantone Extension for Adobe Creative Cloud allows users to search both PMS and FHI colour systems to easily convert CMYK, RGB, and Hex values to Pantone colours. In addition, users are able to build colour palettes of Pantone Colours that can be saved and stored, allowing creative teams to share and re-use colour palettes when using the extension in Adobe Creative Cloud.
“By integrating the full Pantone experience, including the 294 new colours added to the Graphics library into Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign, the Pantone Extension for Adobe Creative Cloud delivers simple, intuitive & collaborative colour workflow management for designers,” said Adobe Sr. Director of Partner Ecosystem, Vijay Vachani. “Adobe and Pantone are excited to explore more opportunities to improve the everyday lives of our shared customers.”
“We are always attuned to the changing market and the needs of our creative customers. As a result, we are excited to create an even more efficient workflow as we roll out new colours for the graphic arts and improved cross-referencing between Pantone’s PMS and FHI colour systems,” said Adrián Fernández, Vice President and General Manager of Pantone. “Adding the launch of the Pantone Extension for Adobe Creative Cloud to this mix will enhance the ability to identify, communicate and verify colours both physically and digitally in the Pantone universe. ”
The new Pantone products are now available from Color Confidence and other European Pantone resellers.
