12-27-22 – Every holiday season since 1962, Pantone Color Institute spotlights one color as the official Color of the Year and this coming year’s chosen hue is a bold and exciting forecast of what’s to come. A bright and vibrant magenta, Pantone Color 18-1750, serves as a nice follow-up to last year’s courageous and creative Periwinkle, and a stark contrast of the Classic Blue of 2020.

NEW YORK, NY; December 27, 2022 –

Color of the Year 2023

Pantone’s Executive Director, Leatrice Eiseman, describes the color as powerful and empowering, stating poetically, “It is a new animated red that revels in pure joy, encouraging experimentation and self-expression without restraint, an electrifying, and a boundaryless shade that is manifesting as a stand-out statement.” 

As we enter into the new year, the team here at Weatherman is delighted to bring with us this notion of standing out and spreading joy. 

Plus, we’re doing a little spotlight of our own…
