Every year, Pantone picks one color as color of the year. As it is almost 2014, Pantone’s color of the year for 2014 will be Radiant Orchid. A purple with pink undertones, it communicates confidence in creativity.

Radiant Orchid, also known as 18-3224 (Hex #B163A3), replaces the lively and lush 2013 Color of the Year, Emerald. It “reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination,”¬†says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of Pantone Color Institute. She also calls out Radiant Orchid’s “enchanting harmony” and how this color “encourages expanded creativity and originality.”
