Pantone Colour of the Year, Ultra Violet
The colour of the year by Pantone is Ultra Violet 18-3838. Each year, the colours reset to something different. It’s not just a matter of picking from 1 of 10,000 different shades. There’s research and more done behind the scenes to list the colour.
Pantone is looking to social trends when deciding the colour of the year. Each year, industry experts in graphics, fashion and much more are wondering what the colours will be. It’s done through research to figure it out. I’m just glad it’s not my job, I’m lucky to match a pair of socks together.
I really like this year’s colour. I have seen colours in the years past where the colours really weren’t what I was expecting. Purple is a beautiful colour generally. It can make projects really pop!
So look for Purple to get a jump on 2018 if it appeals to you!
