To mark the beginning of 2022, Pantone has announced the newest Color of the Year, “Very Peri”.

Pantone selects a new color to be showcased for the entirety of the year, ordinarily representing a sentiment of what the upcoming period of time holds.

This year’s “Very Peri” is described by Pantone as a bold periwinkle. Pantone claims that “Very Peri” elicits and urges feelings of ingenuity, curiosity, and allows for new perspectives of hope and possibility.

“Gaming” and the influx of attention toward an increasingly digital world has played a major role in the declaration of “Very Peri” as the 2022 Color of the Year.

The History Of Pantone

Since 2000, when the Color of the Year Program was established, Pantone has selected preexisting colors from its database. For the first time in Color of the Year history, Pantone has specially crafted a color to showcase the transformations that dominated our lives in 2021.

The process of selecting the Color of the Year takes place in Europe, where Pantone hosts international representatives of the color industry to vote upon potential colors.

Pantone, defined, as “all colors” originated as a printing company specializing in color.

In the 60’s, Pantone designed the Pantone Matching System (PMS), allowing color to become consistent in terms of how it appeared on paper after being printed. The matching system uses color swatches which have an identifying code in order to yield exact colors. These identifying codes are accompanied by a letter, U, C or M, representative of the nature of each color’s property, Uncoated, Coated and Matte, respectively.

The PMS allows printers, designers, and other businesses and consumers to display coloring, both physically and digitally to accurately align with their brand or individual identity. The PMS is still relevant today, with over 9,000 identified Pantone colors.

Pantone And Dictating Trends

Many look to Pantone’s establishment of a yearly color to dictate upcoming trends in beauty, fashion, graphic design, interior design, and other industries heavily relying on color.

Pantone has used this as an opportunity to market its own Color of the Year products, opening doors to collaboration with 3rd party companies.

In 2012, Pantone introduced a collaboration with Sephora with its Color of the Year, “Tangerine Tango”, as the guiding force for a new collection of beauty products. Cariuma has designed a line of sneakers in collaboration with Pantone, highlighting this year’s “Very Peri”.

While following trends or indulging in popular colors influenced by large brands, society or one’s inner circle may be comfortable or appealing, they are subjective and do not account for the intrinsic DNA color propensities of individuals.

C Color makes color personal, taking into account the inherent color inclinations  of individuals and allowing subscribers to discover their own optimal colors with the C Color Quiz and color matching technology system.
