Working With Ultra Violet, Pantone’s 2018 Color of the Year

Pantone’s color of the year is Ultra Violet, a regal blue-purple that celebrates originality, visionary thinking and the ability to take our mystical and imaginative awareness to the next level. This enigmatic shade, popularized by musical icons (David Bowie, Prince and Jimi Hendrix, for example), is all about individuality and nonconformity. Celebrate a dreamy state of being with these Ebates finds below, all in the spirited hue.
