Pantone has announced the color of the year 2018 and it’s – PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet! Since 2000, members of the Pantone Color Institute have been selecting a color that symbolizes design trends and cultural mood in a year to come.
Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own. – from Pantone
The 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. – Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute.
