BGD Celebrates Pantone's Color of the Year: Ultra Violet
With so much that has happened, it's crazy to think that the year is quickly coming to an end. In Pantone fashion, the company announced its choice for Color of the Year as Ultra Violet (PANTONE 18-3838). While the 2017 choice of Greenery symbolized new beginnings for revival, restoration, and renewal, this new year has a completely different outlook that is geared towards endless possibilities.
Ultra Violet embodies originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking to influence and inspire a better and brighter future with discoveries that go beyond from where we are now. A few of the reasons why this purple shade was picked are the suggestion of intrigue for what lies ahead, its representation of artistic brilliance, unapologetic individuality, and unconventionality as shown by pop culture icons like Prince and Jimmy Hendrix. Ultra Violet is also deeply associated with mindfulness because of the spiritual quality attached to it.
