Shaken, tested, and redefined. These words capture our collective journey over the last two years, as many of the habits and lifestyles we relied on were suddenly questioned by a global pandemic. This period of intense personal and social reconstruction is the backdrop for Pantone’s most recent color forecast for 2022. Very Peri, or PANTONE 17-3938, is a bold periwinkle with a red/violet undertone.

According to Pantone, Very Peri “encourages personal inventiveness and creativity” and helps us “embrace this altered landscape of possibilities”.
