Pantone color | Colors that speak to you


Pantone had made the choice of appeasement in 2020 with its "Classic Blue" whose aim was to be reassuring and to establish an atmosphere relying on confidence in a tense atmosphere.
For the year 2021, the Pantone of the year institute had selected two colors to illustrate our time.
These were PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating, a combination of two diametrically opposed colors to express an image based on strength and durability, over time.

What if the Very Peri was a rapidly changing blue?


For this new year, it is a frank and unique choice represented by the Very Peri purple.

Some see it as blue and others see it as purple, it divides the public opinion in two, making us flexible. And that's what we do! The current news has forced us to adapt, by changing our way of thinking, to get familiarized with new technologies and opportunities that are within reach.

In fact, purple belongs to the family of blues, in which Pantone has added purple red to highlight that unique tone.

Very Peri | The choice of change

At the same time, reassuring, soft and dynamic, the Very Peri encourages us to enter the universe of the metaverse and the virtual world.
Our times are witnessing unprecedented changes and digital technology is taking more and more place in our respective lives.
Therefore, the Pantone Institute invites you to celebrate a new era, positioned under the sign of curiosity and creativity.
Through the trend of gaming, Pantone perfectly illustrates the creative world of graphics and opens the door to a virtual world, in which creativity has no limits. Symbol of lightness and optimism, it encourages us to indulge in art through all its forms, exploring our imaginative capacities.


Purple | Color of hope, color of history

A color full of mystery, recognized as "purple" only since the 18th century, when Isaac Newton identified it on the color spectrum.
It is a complex shade, tough to obtain, because it requires the right balance between cyan blue and magenta red, two hues which are diametrically opposed.
Still considered enigmatic, purple is a symbol of creativity and meditation.

"Ultra purple" or "Very Peri" | Ultra prized purple!


It is not a coincidence that it was the pantone 2018 color with a powerful and unconventional "Ultra-purple", which was then perceived as a message of hope for the coming months.
Therefore, its successor has its spot, Very Peri purple continues to fascinate and divide opinions, by being promising, bold and dynamic.
The complexity of this smart blue-red mixture demonstrates the changes taking place on our planet and the immensity of the opportunities which are within reach. Very Peri pushes back the field of possibilities, by encouraging everyone to renew himself, and think differently.
It encourages us to overcome the isolation we suffer from, by letting our artistic senses get the upper hand.
