Pantone Ultra Violet colour of the year 2018 setting the colour trend for the year discussed at Secret Smile Photography
Pantone colour of the year 2018 - Ultra Violet
 

The Pantone Colour of the year for 2018 is Ultra Violet. Each year Pantone (a US colour industry corporation) set their colour of the year based on research into trends in fashion and industry.

 

Ultra Violet is a very strong purple colour and will be trending in all sorts of industries in 2018, not least in photography, graphic design and fashion industries. Here’s what Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute has to say about the colour:

So I have looked back on some of the images I’ve created over the past year using purples of all shades from the dark opulent and regal purples to the light, delicate and airy lilacs and I’ve realised that it’s a really versatile colour no matter what the season.

I tend towards darker colours in the autumn and winter, moving towards the lighter colours as spring creeps up and then on into summer.

Purples are so versatile, they can be mixed with so many other wonderful colours, I particularly love them paired with yellow and also with grey.

What’s your favourite shade of purple? Is it like Pantone’s Ultra Violet, or the deeper richer purple favoured by monarchs or even the light and delicate lilacs of nature? Let me know your thoughts! I have a fab Pinterest board that has some lovely colour combinations and colour palettes for home decor, children's ourfits, even colour schemes for children's parties that might interest you.
