Pantone has released its color of 2018 and we are loving it. 2018 will be the year of Ultra Violet, said to communicate originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future. We can see why Ultra Violet was picked. With our sights set on the future, and Pantone's Ultra Violet leading the way, we're very excited what 2018 has in store for us. 


"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.

Colors of Pantone past have included:

  • 2017: The year of Greenery, a "fresh and zesty yellow-green shade" symbolic of new beginnings
