An Uplifting Vibrant Color to kick off your 2023!

2023 is just around the corner, while we’re all looking forward to the new year, don't forget the annual colour of the year 2023 chosen by the colour authority, Pantone!


The new 2023 colour of the year is PANTONE 18-1750 "Viva Magenta", a magenta colour between red and purple, vibrant and passionate, courageous and inspiring!


PANTONE 18-1750 (Viva Magenta) is between red and pink on the colour palatte and is inspired by cochineals. Cochineal red is extracted from mature cochineal worms. Cochineal is an insect native to Mexico and Central America, and the mature insects contain high levels of magenta acid, which can be made into natural carmine pigment. It is one of the precious dyes that belong to the family of natural dyes and is one of the more intense and brighter dyes known in the world.


Like periwinkle blue, the colour of the year 2022, Viva Magenta is also a new age colour that is considered to be the most relevant to the current era, to give hope and show the power of renewal, and to be suitable for both real and virtual worlds. Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of Pantone, said “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”.

Viva Magenta, the colour of 2023 hopes to evoke the power of nature through the vibrant, resilient magenta, an uplifting, boundary-free hue that inspires people to think outside the box and regain their inner strength in these troubling times.
