Every year, Pantone(R) announces its color trend of the year, as well as other trendy colors. This year is palpably purple “Ultra Violet!”
Pantone says: “A dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade… Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future. Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet, like the vast and limitless night sky, suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, lighting the way to what is yet to come. Enigmatic purples have also long been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality, artistic brilliance, and spiritual reflection. Ultra Violet symbolizes experimentation and nonconformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets.”
Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute comments, “Pantone Color of the Year has come to mean so much more than ‘what’s trending’ in the world of design; it’s truly a reflection of what’s needed in our world today.” I guess we all need a little more violet, then!
