Design Board: Ultra Violet COTY Inspiration
With Pantone's 2018 Color of the Year 'Ultra Violet' in mind, our newest design board features shades seeking both the fun and dramatic across the purple spectrum. Smatterings of green, gold and blue compliment, while neutrals provide perfect backdrops for letting the bolder, more energetic colors grab the attention.
