olors can have a profound impact on productivity by simply encouraging positive emotions in employees. Natural toned colors such as green and blue hues can improve efficiency and focus, while warm yellows can trigger optimism, creativity and fresh energy. Vivid colors like red add intensity to the décor and can inspire passion and boost physical activity.
So what colors that promote productivity are advantageous to your business, employees and customers?
PANTONE 18-3838 ULTRA VIOLET
Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own.
Enigmatic purples have also long been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality, and artistic brilliance. Musical icons Prince, David Bowie, and Jimi Hendrix brought shades of Ultra Violet to the forefront of western pop culture as personal expressions of individuality. Nuanced and full of emotion, the depth of PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet symbolizes experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets.
“The Pantone Color of the Year has come to mean so much more than ‘what’s trending’ in the world of design; it’s truly a reflection of what’s needed in our world today.” – Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute.
