The Pantone Colour Institute has announced the 2018 colour of the year! Setting the colour each year guides makers of products to utilize the colour of the year in their designs.
Executive Director, Leatrice Eiseman, of the Institute states that they have chosen Ultra Violet for 2018. She states that “it is the most complex of all colours” “Because it takes two shades that are seemingly diametrically opposed — blue and red — and brings them together to create something new.” The New York Times, December 9, 2017.
Ultra Violet is a colour associated with wealth, power and royalty historically. “For 2018, Ms. Eiseman said, “We wanted to pick something that brings hope and an uplifting message.”” The New York Times, December 9, 2017.
Maxwell Fabrics states that this year’s Pantone colour is a cool yet vibrant shade, the complex Ultra Violet makes a bold, original statement in a room setting, whether used as an accent or a dramatic feature. These samples from Maxwell Fabrics demonstrate this beautiful shade:
