As every year the designers waiting the Pantone’s last word about the color of the year. It the most unveil in december the last month before new year comes. Let us introduce you to “Very Peri” the color of year 2022.
The shade “Very Peri” is what Pantone is describing as “periwinkle blue,” with hues of both violet and a soft blue. This pastel blue/purple shade is causing some serious nostalgia in us, as it looks like it just stepped out of the 1990s. Pantone describes the color as having a “courageous presence” that “encourages personal inventiveness and creativity”.
Last year Pantone announced two colors instead of one and that’s probably was the sign that next can be something more amazing.

According to the Pantone’s website, this is the first color that it has ever created from scratch for the colour of the year. The vice president of Pantone explains that creating the new color “reflects the global innovation and transformation taking place”. We like the sentiment, but we can’t help but think if Pantone was trying to convey innovation, perhaps it shouldn’t have used a color that so many will recognize as a shade popular in the 90s?
- Pantone: 17-3938

It’s not the first time when Pantone color of the year belongs to the blue family. Two years ago, they already announced “Classic Blue” as the color of 2020. Meant to stand for serenity and faith in our future.
The Pantone Color of the Year reflects what is taking place in our global culture, expressing what people are looking for that color can hope to answer. – says Leatrice Eiseman (Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute).
