Why is Viva Magenta Perfect to Represent 2023?

The Executive Director of Pantone, Leatrice Eiseman, speaks about their choice of this color and the inspiration behind it, saying:

In this age of technology, we look to draw inspiration from nature and what is real. PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta descends from the red family and is inspired by the red of cochineal, one of the most precious dyes belonging to the natural dye family as well as one of the strongest and brightest the world has known.

Rooted in the primordial, PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta reconnects us to original matter. Invoking the forces of nature, Viva Magenta galvanizes our spirit, helping us to build our inner strength.

With the trending style of bringing nature inside, more designers and homeowners are choosing to add more plants and flowers into their homes. This style is based strongly on the after-effects of the recent pandemic, which caused a newfound appreciation for the outdoors and the beauty of nature. 2023 is set to be a year of reconnection with the natural side of things.

Magenta is the perfect bold reminder of the rich floral side of nature. It blends natural with modern digital styles in the perfect manner. This is why Pantone believes Viva Magenta will be the ideal balance shade for any earthy, airy, chic modern, minimalistic, or vibrant setting. Magenta is, in a sense, a hybrid. It sits between the physical and the virtual, and even the organic and innovative.
