Introduction of Viva Magenta 18-1750

18-1750 Viva Magenta(From Pantone)

Viva Magenta 18-1750  Pantone’s Color of the Year, vibrates with vim and vigor. It is a shade rooted in nature descending from the red family and expressive of a new signal of strength. Viva Magenta is brave and fearless, and a pulsating color whose exuberance promotes a joyous and optimistic celebration, writing a new narrative.2023’s Color of the Year is powerful and empowering. It is a new animated red that revels in pure joy, encouraging experimentation and self-expression without restraint, an electrifying, and a boundaryless shade that is manifesting as a stand-out statement. It is a color that is audacious, full of wit and inclusive of all. (Quoted from:  https://www.pantone.com/hk/en/color-of-the-year/2023)
