Pantone Color of The Year
By Emma Engle
New Year, New Color!
Ultra Violet is the Pantone Color of 2018. It is announced in December and is a big deal in fashion and design circles. Ultra Violet is described as a blue-based purple. It is a color created by mixing 2 colors together blue and red.
How are the colors chosen each year?
Two years in advance and through analysis and research of pop culture trends.
“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.” -The vice president of the Pantone Color Institute, Laurie Pressman
