Here we are, the end of another year and that means one thing in the design world – the Pantone Color of the Year announcement! Are you ready? The Pantone Color of the Year 2022 is… PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri! The global color authority announced a new blue-ish color that’s a “dynamic periwinkle blue hue with a vivifying violet-red undertone,” and further explains “this happiest and warmest of all the blue hues introduces an empowering mix of newness.” For the first time in 23 years since the launch of the Color of the Year program, Pantone created a brand-new color that “reflects the global innovation and transformation taking place,” says Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute.

As we move into a world of unprecedented change, the selection of PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri brings a novel perspective and vision of the trusted and beloved blue color family. Encompassing the qualities of the blues, yet at the same time possessing a violet-red undertone, PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri displays a spritely, joyous attitude and dynamic presence that encourages courageous creativity and imaginative expression.
