Colour Of The Year 2014
Every year since 2000 Pantone release a ‘Colour of the year’ that expresses what is taking place in the global zeitgeist. This year they’ve chosen Radiant Orchid. Pantone have said “The captivating, magical and enchanting Radiant Orchid. An invitation to innovation, modern and versatile Radiant Orchid encourages creativity and originality. Imbued with a harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and its rosy undertones emanate great joy, love and health.” It seems Pantone have chosen a colour to revitalise the creative side to our brains. So let’s get creative and share that joy, love and health with one another by keeping radiant Orchid at the front of our mind when thinking about colours and design.
Fashion is at the forefront of the colour industry and always determines the colour trends for the year throughout the whole design industry. Below shows a chart of colour for Spring/Summer 2014.
Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of Pantone Colour Institute said “This season, consumers are looking for a state of thoughtful, emotional and artistic equilibrium. While this need for stability is reflected in the composition of the palette, the inherent versatility of the individual colours allows for experimentation with new looks and colour combinations.”
