Viva Magenta is the colour of the year

Pantone’s colour of the year for 2023 doesn’t seem like it’s going to strike the same note as previous winning shades (think the ever-present grey of 2021, or the still inescapable millennial pink of 2016). However, there is something to be said for the assertive crimson red that is Viva Magenta. If you’re looking for more bold, strong colours and joyous expression, why not give it a try?
