Pantone Names “Very Peri” Color of the Year for 2022

New Pantone color is a “symbol of the global zeitgeist of the moment.”




Pantone (Carlstadt, NJ), best known for a propriety color space called the Pantone Matching System used in the graphic design and printing industries, has named PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri its 2022 Color of the Year.

In a release, the company said the color encompasses the qualities of the blues and possesses a violet-red undertone. Very Peri’s designation marks the first time that Pantone has created a new color for its Color of the Year program.

Pantone describes the color:

“PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri is a symbol of the global zeitgeist of the moment and the transition we are going through. As we emerge from an intense period of isolation, our notions and standards are changing, and our physical and digital lives have merged in new ways. Digital design helps us to stretch the limits of reality, opening the door to a dynamic virtual world where we can explore and create new color possibilities. With trends in gaming, the expanding popularity of the metaverse and rising artistic community in the digital space PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri illustrates the fusion of modern life and how color trends in the digital world are being manifested in the physical world and vice versa.”
