Pantone, Inc., the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, selected PANTONE 18-3943 Blue Iris, a beautifully balanced blue-purple, as the color of the year for 2008.
The color combo reflects "the stable and calming aspects of blue with the mystical and spiritual qualities of purple,â€ the company says, adding it "satisfies the need for reassurance in a complex world, while adding a hint of mystery and excitement."
"Look for it artfully combined with deeper plums, red-browns, yellow-greens, grapes and grays," the executive director of Pantone said, adding, it "best represents color direction in 2008 for fashion, cosmetics and home products."
This color will be present in a lot of proposals and designs in the following year. If you take note of this color now, you can put your designs at a big advantage.
