As soon as the first of December rolls around, all of us in the burmatex design department are impatiently awaiting the announcement from Pantone of what the new years “colour of the year” will be.
For 2018, we have moved on from Greenery 15-0343 to Ultraviolet 18-3838.
“It’s the most complex of all colors; it takes two shades that are seemingly diametrically opposed — blue and red — and brings them together to create something new.”
A dramatic purple shade, also connected to the wellness movement (like Greenery) when you consider the link to amethyst crystals and the mystical, magical and hopeful aura that Ultraviolet exudes. Images of galaxies, neon hints and futuristic vibes accompany the launch on Pantone’s website.
