Tickled PINK!

Tickled PINK!

Tickled PINK!... or, Purple?!

As many of you may, or may not know, the Pantone Color Institute designates a Color of the Year, every year, to “express in color what is taking place in the global zeitgeist,” and they’ve done this since year 2000. The colors they choose are those that will resonate globally and ring true to the spirit of consumers worldwide. Well, this year is no different from the rest. The color that speaks to the world this year is Pantone 18-3224, better known as Radiant Orchid. According to the pantone website, Radiant Orchid “encourages creativity and originality,” and “emanates great joy, love and health.”


What’s so fascinating about thus color is its mixture of pink and purple undertones. If you’ve ever studied color theory, you know just how powerful these two colors are alone, so to combine these colors into one speaks volumes about what we as a global community are looking for.

Color expert, Kate Smith of, explains the global meaning of both pink and purple excellently, and I think this will help give you a better understanding of the impact that Radiant Orchid is sure to have on us all.
