PANTONE have named this year’s colour as Radiant Orchid – so purple for us simple folk.
Since 2000 Pantone Colour Institute have dictated what the colour of the year will be, the colour that is selected is supposed express what is taking place in a global vision. Purple is described as being magical and is supposed to entice us in, draw us in. It is also the colour of creativity and this is why Pantone have made this exciting choice.
Leatrice Eiseman headed up the team that would paint this years mood, which you can imagine was no easy task to manage – the team took inspiration from all sectors coming through the design world to see what colour was emerging to take the top spot, influences included ‘ entertainment industry, upcoming films, art, emerging artists, travel destinations and socio-economic conditions.’
So lets bring on the creativity this year… let 2014 brake the boundries of creativity in all areas of design.
