Pantone Color of the Year 2014: Radiant Orchid

Pantone Color of Year 2014Annually, Pantone, the international color trend authority, awards one color with the distinction of being awarded the title Color of the Year. The Pantone Color of the Year 2014 is Radiant Orchid.

Selecting the Pantone Color of the Year requires careful contemplation of influences from around the world including current trends in art, travel destinations, innovative technology and the world economy. Representative members from the Pantone Color Institute convene to consider suggested color choices and determine their selection of the shade that best represents the direction of the moods and trends of consumers.

Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, Leatrice Eiseman, shares the thinking behind the committee’s selection of Radiant Orchid as  the Pantone Color of the Year 2014:

“Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple—one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health.”
