Pantone has unveiled its Color of the Year for 2023, Viva Magenta.
As Pantone describes it, Viva Magenta Pantone 18-1750 is a “color that is audacious, full of wit, and inclusive of all.”
“It is a new animated red that revels in pure joy, encouraging experimentation and self-expression without restraint, an electrifying, and boundaryless shade that is manifesting as a stand-out statement,” it said.
Unlike last year when Pantone created a new color, Viva Magenta draws inspiration from nature and what is real. “PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta descends from the red family, and is inspired by the red of cochineal, one of the most precious dyes belonging to the natural dye family as well as one of the strongest and brightest the world has known,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.
“Rooted in the primordial, PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta reconnects us to original matter. Invoking the forces of nature, PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta galvanizes our spirit, helping us to build our inner strength,” adds Eiseman.
Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2022 was Very Peri 17-3938.
