Color of the Year 2018
At this point it's almost an obligatory post introducing the Color of the Year. If there was any fanfare it died down almost two months ago, unless you really love this color, and in that case it has nothing to do with Pantone's annual announcement. But hey, it's a tradition around these parts so here we are.
This year Ultra Violet, with its shades of grape, has been declared top hue. No pressure purple but you've been described as "innovative, imaginative, provocative, thoughtful, complex, contemplative". I'm often iffy on how it should be deployed. It's a CHOICE. That may be in part due to my high school colors. But I think it has its place I'm here for anything that introduces some positive energy.
