Introducing Pantone’s ‘Color Of the Year’: Vivid MagentaBring Some ‘Vivid Magenta’ Into 2023 with these tips and of course… ARTWORK From Pinot’s Palette!
Pantone’s 2023 Color of the Year is 18-1750 Viva Magenta, a “brave and fearless, animated red that encourages experimentation and self-expression without restraint.” The nuanced crimson is a balance between warm and cool tones that the global authority hails as “assertive but not aggressive.”
Viva Magenta is not only balanced between warm and cool, but between historical and futuristic. The shade is a take on carmine red, one of the most expensive and prized natural dyes, derived from cochineal insects. “As virtual worlds become a more prominent part of our daily lives, we look to draw inspiration from nature and what is real,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Rooted in the primordial, PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta reconnects us to original matter. Invoking the forces of nature, it galvanizes our spirit, helping us to build our inner strength.”
What is Viva Magenta?
Pantone’s Color of the Year, Viva Magenta 18-1750, vibrates with vim and vigor. It is a shade rooted in nature descending from the red family and expressive of a new signal of strength. Viva Magenta is brave and fearless, and a pulsating color whose exuberance promotes a joyous and optimistic celebration, writing a new narrative.
This year’s Color of the Year is powerful and empowering. It is a new animated red that revels in pure joy, encouraging experimentation and self-expression without restraint, an electrifying, and a boundaryless shade that is manifesting as a stand-out statement. PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta welcomes anyone and everyone with the same verve for life and rebellious spirit. It is a color that is audacious, full of wit and inclusive of all.
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, PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta galvanizes our spirit, helping us to build our inner strength."

Red has been absent in Pantone’s past decade-plus of selections; you have to go back to 2007 for Chili Pepper, and to 2002 for True Red. The shade, however, is a natural choice for the home space; red is often thought of as a color for kitchens due to its energetic vibe, and it’s frequently one of the first choices for accents and accessories in any room. Viva Magenta’s unique balance of warm and cool tones makes it an easy addition, whether you prefer neutrals, jewel tones, or brights, as depicted in the palettes below:
