Ultra Violet 18-3838 “originality, ingenuity and creativity”.
A year of changes by Pantone
Pantone has made the announcement! We can expect a year full of changes where creativity and ingenuity take centre stage. So explained the Global Colour Authority when it announced that Ultra Violet 18-3838 will be the colour of the year 2018.
Since the year 2000, the Pantone Institute has selected a star colour for each year based on an evaluation by company directors and more than 40 experts from around the world. The choice takes into account the current cultural mood, social and economic conditions and the latest trends in design, culture and leisure, including popular films and music of the moment.
These experts initially decide on the possible range of colours and then select the perfect tone to signify the coming year.
Why Ultra Violet?
Ultraviolet symbolises change, experimentation, intrigue and non-conformity. “This is the most complex of colours”, says the executive director of Pantone, a combination of red and blue, polar opposites that come together to create something new. It is therefore a colour of hope and vision pointing towards the future.
This is a colour that radiates optimism in the face of the anxieties felt in society during a complex time. It is a tone that calls us to action, originality, invention and bold thinking.
Ultra Violet 18-3838 is a vibrant colour, boldly provocative, fascinating and magical, perfect for the most ingenious designs where experimentation takes centre stage. Without a doubt, Ultra Violet will become an essential element in the projects of the most creative interior designers.
The colours of Pantone since the year 2000
Ultra violet is a break from the softer refreshing colours of recent years. In 2017, Greenery, or Green, I love you green, evoked the natural world in a light-hearted way. The year 2016 was marked by two colours, quartz and serenity blue, soothing colours inviting calm and relaxation.
