Pantone colour of the year - Ultra Violet

Pantone colour of the year - Ultra Violet

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. Recognized around the world as a leading source of color information through seasonal trend forecasts, custom color development, and palette recommendations for product and corporate identity, Pantone Color Institute partners with global brands to leverage the power, psychology and emotion of color in their design strategy.’ Read more about the Pantone Colour Institute here.

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:
