What is PANTONE 2022 color?

Tommaso Berra

In 2021, PANTONE decided that the color of the year would be the combination of PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating. The union between the two colors was intended to represent the desire for rebirth and to regain “energy, lucidity and hope“.
The most important company in the classification of colors has presented a few hours ago what will be the PANTONE of 2022, a “dynamic periwinkle blue shade with a vibrant red violet undertone“, catalogued as PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri.

The percentage of blue present in the new color is a message of confidence and lightheartedness, but also a hue that unites the physical and digital worlds, a central theme in recent months and destined to be deepened in 2022 as well.
For the first time in the history of the Pantone Color of the Year, the company has created a new color. This too reflects an idea of innovation and openness to universes less definable by physical experience. The role PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri will play in the coming year will still be to inspire the palettes of designers, graphic designers and artists, in anticipation of seeing it appear within artwork and photographs, above runway shows and as a backdrop to a metaverse yet to be explored.
