I think we all remember last year when Pantone created a standardized custom purple shade in honour of the international icon, Prince. This colour was the perfect tribute to Prince's conrtibution to music, art, fashion and culture.

So it comes as no surprise that Pantone have selected a very similar shade to be their colour of the year for 2018: 

"Inventive and imaginative, Ultra Violet lights the way to what is yet to come.

ANNOUNCING PANTONE 18-3838 ULTRA VIOLET, PANTONE® COLOR OF THE YEAR 2018."

The colour purple has 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.
