Here’s to a radiant 2014!
In the design world, the start of a new year also means the unveiling of a new PANTONE ‘colour of the year’.
Considered to be the world’s leading authority on colour, Pantone LLC, has declared that 2014 will be enlivened by the colour purple – PANTONE® 18-3224 Radiant Orchid to be exact.
From economics and fashion trends to arts and entertainment, Pantone takes many cultural and socio-economic factors into consideration when choosing a colour to define a whole year. Last year’s Emerald represented growth, renewal and prosperity. For 2014, Radiant Orchid has been selected to ‘inspire confidence and emanate great joy, love and health’. It is also expected to ‘encourage expanded creativity and originality’.
Whether or not we agree with the colour prophecy, we love the the sentiments behind the choice. Here’s to a happy, healthy and inspiring year ahead.
