Very Peri: Pantone’s 2022 Carefree and Dynamic Colour

January 24, 2022

Pantone, a global-leading colour institute, has revealed the colour of the year 2022. Very Peri (PANTONE 17-3938) is a periwinkle blue hue which combines the faithfulness of blue and excitement of red. 

The reason behind Very Peri as the chosen colour of the year 2022 is the notion of transition. Pantone has noted that the living standards and notions have changed after a period of isolation, and the physical and digital world has merged miraculously. The rise of digital space can bring unlimited possibilities in trends, metaverse, and design scenes, which Pantone hopes this colour could bring in more new ideas. 


What Do Experts Say?

“As we move into a world of unprecedented change, the selection of PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri brings a novel perspective and vision of the trusted and beloved blue colour family,” stated Leatrice Eiserman, Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute.

Encompassing the qualities of the blues, yet at the same time possessing a violet-red undertone, PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri displays a spritely, joyous attitude and dynamic presence that encourages courageous creativity and imaginative expression.”

“The Pantone Colour of the Year reflects what is taking place in our global culture, expressing what people are looking for that colour can hope to answer,” added Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute.

“Creating a new colour for the first time in the history of our Pantone Colour of the Year educational colour program reflects the global innovation and transformation taking place. As society continues to recognise colour as a critical form of communication, and a way to express and affect ideas and emotions and engage and connect, the complexity of this new red violet infused blue hue highlights the expansive possibilities that lay before us.”
