Printing in Pantone Color of the Year 2022

Pantone Color of the Year 2022 Veri Peri

Every year since 1999, Pantone has named a “color of the year” based on in-depth trend analysis across a wide variety of industries worldwide. Factors influencing this compelling color choice can come from films and TV, fashion, lifestyle trends, new technologies and even socio-economic conditions.

So what does 2022’s “color snapshot” say about the state of the world, and more importantly, should you incorporate the Color of the Year into your printed materials?

Veri Peri: Casting a new Vision

According to the Pantone Color Institute, PANTONE 17-3938 Veri Peri symbolizes innovation and transformation, daring curiosity and creative potential in an altered landscape of possibilities. This is underscored by the fact that for the first time Pantone has created an all-new color for Color of the Year, rather than choosing an existing color from their extensive catalog.

You can already spot this of-the-moment new shade in spring fashion and beauty trends. Expect to see Veri Peri across a wide array of products as well: from throw pillows to smartphone cases to desserts.
