Pantone has revealed Viva Magenta as the “colour of 2023” for their “colour of year”.
According to the design company, the colour “promotes joyous and hopeful celebrations, writing a new story.”
Pantone describes Viva Magenta as a shade that is “rooted in nature, descending from red family and expressive a new signal for strength”.
Since its introduction in 2000, Pantone’s Colour of the Year has been a key part of brand marketing and design.
These are some recent adopters of magenta.
