For 23 years the Pantone Colour of the Year has been massively influential in many areas like home furnishing, fashion, graphic design, industrial design and product packaging. So you may be wondering who Pantone are. They're a company that in 1963 changed the printing industry with their colour matching system that allows people all over the world to faithfully select, articulate and reproduce a consistent, accurate colour without having to contact each other. 

This year's Colour of the Year is Very Peri. Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute describes this year's choice “Creating a new colour for the first time in the history of our Pantone Color of the Year educational colour program reflects the global innovation and transformation taking place. As society continues to recognise colour as a critical form of communication, and a way to express and affect ideas and emotions and engage and connect, the complexity of this new red violet infused blue hue highlights the expansive possibilities that lay before us”.
