Pantone colour of the year - Ultra Violet

Friday 15 December 2017, Written by Laura Tompkins Tags: Trends

Many people are probably thinking about festive panettone at this time of year, rather than the Pantone colour of the year, but not us! We’re still obsessing over the new colour of the year for 2018, Ultra Violet, a beautiful soft but still punchy purple, a similar colour in fact, to our tile of the year Heath!

Pantone have been forecasting colour trends for years, selecting a colour of the year since 2000:

‘The Pantone Color Institute is a consulting service within Pantone that forecasts global color trends and advises companies on color in brand identity and product development, for the application and integration of color as a strategic asset.

Our tile of the year Heath is a softer shade of purple with a grey hue, but for the ultra violet trend we do have a plenty of purple shades to choose from. Check out some ideas below:
