2018 spring color palette

Daffodils are pushing through the warmth of the earth, stretching their sunny heads toward that yellow orb in the sky. Pacific Northwesterners are shedding their layers of fleece and heading out into the great outdoors.

Spring has sprung–and so has the 2018 Pantone Spring color palette.

The design world takes its cue from the current fashion color trends, and every season, Pantone gives us a fresh palette to work with.

According to Pantone, “The desire for colorful self-expression is a key take away for Spring 2018. The color story is wildly divergent and we see a kaleidoscopic bounty of uplifting shades and feel-good tones. There is a feeling of optimism and confidence driving a new vitality into fashion trends. That doesn’t mean that we don’t continue to look for more neutral or classic shades. While simple, these core basics are seasonal essentials, working well on their own, as well as providing the landscape for the color complexity.”
