Yay…Everybody met with their families and loved ones in this Christmas time. Now we are impatient to celebrate and welcome 2018. 
Most of us heard, read or get a newsletter that Pantone has announced the UltraViolet as the colour of the year 2018.
 
I always admire and fan of violets, purples, lilacs…However, violet is the least used colours when we speak in terms of the colour wheel, because it may be found the least frequently in nature. 
 
But, as it is mentioned in Pantone web site, “Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.”
 
We are in the times where we need more visionary thinking creativity along with the fast transformations in technology, artificial intelligence and coding. Old and tired 2017 might be full of more sad news compared to the previous years for most of us, however, we had good achievements and successes significantly in technology and creative industries as well. So I am hopeful for 2018 and looking forward the following days.
As pointed by Pantone;  
“Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own. Enigmatic purples have also long been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality, and artistic brilliance.
Happy 2018 for all
