Ultra Violet: Color of the Year


Ultra Violet: Color of the Year


The Pantone Color Institute announced the Color of the Year for 2018 is Ultra Violet 18-3838. Ultra violet is purple with a blue undertone. It represents creativity, breaking barriers, a new age of culture and experimentation. Think technological advances, higher social awareness and appreciation for individuality and uniqueness.

Purple passion will be taking over your fashion, your Manic PanicĀ® Ultra Violet hair dye, your nail polish and of course, your jewelry. The sky is the limit - creatively!

Ultra Violet is described as mystical, spiritual, meditative, enigmatic, complex and contemplative; unconventional, inspirational and evocative of artistic brilliance.

Artistic brilliance brings to mind the purple majesty of singer Prince, who passed away too young in 2016. The Pantone Color Institute honored Prince with his own special shade of purple last year, Love Symbol #2. It appears Prince is still inspiring color for 2018 and was recently honored by Justin Timberlake during the Super Bowl LII halftime show.

"The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own."  - The Pantone Institute

This year's color invites you to open your horizons, dream and create your future because the future is now. Think of SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket launch. Space travel becoming available to private citizens and Elon Musk's exploration of the possibility of living on other planets.
