“We are living in a time that requires inventiveness and imagination,” says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute when speaking about Ultra Violet – Pantone’s Color of the Year 2018. She goes on to say, “From exploring new technologies and the greater galaxy, to artistic expression and spiritual reflection, intuitive Ultra Violet lights the way to what is yet to come.”
The eight new colour palettes that feature Ultra Violet are a welcome reprieve, especially on these grey March days. The jewel-like Drama Queen is one of my favourites. The ethereal Purple Haze is calmer and I’ve used it with success in a new publication about botanical illustration.
