Do you know what the colour of the year for 2018 is? ......

OMG I am in love with Pantone’s colour of the year this year!! Don’t get me wrong, last years was greenery and that was cool, but this Ultra Violet is way more dramatic!  I will explain what that cover picture is in a minute but first...I’ve researched the colour and Ultra Violet means.... to communicate originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking in order to point us toward the future.
