Spot Color is used to separate colors that are not to be mixed. In this case, each spot color is represented by its own ink, which is specially mixed. When a design has very basic, solid color fills that are easy to identify, we refer to the separation type as spot color. A spot color will match specific colors in an image and will often be set to a Pantone solid color.
