Pantone Color of the Year is Ultra Violet

And Speaking of Design and Color..
I laughed out loud when I heard that the 2018 Pantone Color of the Year is PURPLE!!! Who even knew that there was a pantone color of the year?…PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet

It is describes as
“Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now.”

It is a color for our times:

The color of the year translates over about fashion, decorating and design trends while also reflecting “what’s needed in our world today,” the Pantone Color Institute’s vice president, Laurie Pressman stated “…a dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade,” Pantone says, one that “communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us towards the future.”

Women’s suffrage movements in the early 1900s used the vibrant color in logos and banners. And in our current day of  Sexuality and Sexual Identity, the color purple, shows a flowering of support for LGBTQ people

And…The color is oh so Vineyard!
