COLOR INSPIRATION: radiant orchid - pantone color of the year

If you keep up with the design and printing world, you have probably already heard that Pantone’s 2014 color of the year is Radiant Orchid. If you’re not familiar with this annual-global-trendsetting event, here’s a brief overview. Pantone is the industry leader in color science - you may be familiar with the Pantone Matching System (PMS colors) or have seen the Pantone color wheels or color chips. The system allows designers to match colors regardless of the printing system and also carries over into paint, fabric and other industries.

So without further ado, here’s the beautiful Radiant Orchid.

“While the 2013 color of the year, PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald, served as a symbol of growth, renewal and prosperity, Radiant Orchid reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “An invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society. An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”
