Every year, Pantone releases their defining color of the year, and it usually emulates what’s currently going on in the world of design and beyond. This year, it’s Ultra Violet, “a blue-based purple that takes our awareness and potential to a higher level”, says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.

According to Eiseman, the color is often associated with mindfulness practices, offering us an opportunity to seek refuge from an over-stimulated world. We can get down with that.
