Pantone’s Tangerine Tango

Pantone’s 2012 color of the year, Tangerine Tango, has sprinkled across many products and designs, proving to be as spicey as it is bold.  The color is as fun as the name implies and provides the perfect punch. Experimenting with how the tangerine color (or similar orange) could pump up a palette, I was inspired to throw together a few color palettes.
