ASB MAGAZINE:  Globe have announced the upcoming release of 2 limited edition box sets; the Pantone® Color of the YearÔ series. For more than 20 years, Pantone’s Color of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions across fashion and furnishings, as well as product, packaging, and graphic design. As creatives, we speak the language of color and Pantone is our dictionary. In tribute, we offer fellow design and color enthusiasts the ability to skate or collect a piece of color trend history.
