Pantone’s Colour of the Year is Tanner De Witt purple


Colour authority Pantone has just announced their Colour of the Year for 2018, and they have selected a shade not at all dissimilar to our Tanner De Witt purple! Their shade is called Ultra Violet, and it’s been described as ‘inventive and imaginative’ as well as ‘complex and contemplative’.

About Ultra Violet

Enigmatic purples have also long been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality, and artistic brilliance. Musical icons Prince, David Bowie, and Jimi Hendrix brought shades of Ultra Violet to the forefront of western pop culture as personal expressions of individuality. Nuanced and full of emotion, the depth of PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet symbolizes experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets.
