Get ready to enter the Magentaverse. Introducing Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2023: Viva Magenta 18-1750. The Pantone Color Institute created the Pantone Color of the Year in 2000, and since then, it has been used to forecast trends for the upcoming year. Its influence is global in buying decisions, branding, marketing and product development, but not just in interior design – industries like fashion, graphic design, industrial design, product packaging and many more also take into consideration Pantone’s Color of the Year.

After a tumultuous and unprecedented two years, Viva Magenta aims to write a brand-new narrative. Previously selected lively yellow Illuminating, the enduring Ultimate Gray and the curious Very Peri, offered hope, resilience and creativity. Now Viva Magenta is paving a path toward a future with boldness, vibrance and vigor in 2023.

“In this age of technology, we look to draw inspiration from nature and what is real. PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta descends from the red family, and is inspired by the red of cochineal, one of the most precious dyes belonging to the natural dye family as well as one of the strongest and brightest the world has known. Rooted in the primordial, PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta reconnects us to original matter. Invoking the forces of nature, PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta galvanizes our spirit, helping us to build our inner strength.”

– Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute
