Every year, the Pantone Color Institute releases a color to represent the year. For 2022, it chose Very Peri, a brand-new vibrant blue hue, to color your favorite trends this year. Let’s explore more about the Color of the Year, what it represents, and how to work it into your creative vision and edits with YouCam Perfect!
What Is the Pantone Color of the Year and Why Does It Matter?
The Pantone Color Institute started the Pantone Color of the Year in 2000 to set creative trends. Since then, it’s released a new color each year that sets the creative standard for the year. The chosen color impacts everything from design to marketing to influencers on your favorite social media platforms.
Some years have even seen combined colors, like the Ultimate Gray and Illuminating Vibrant Yellow for 2021. The color of the year often represents themes going into the new year. In 2021, the two colors represented support, optimism in the face of adversity, and strength. Now, 2022’s new color takes us into the new year with a new message.
