Ultra Violet is also often associated with spirituality, the mysteries of the cosmos and the intrigue of what lies ahead. Here’s a quote from Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute:
We are living in a time that requires inventiveness and imagination. It is this kind of creative inspiration that is indigenous to PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet, a blue-based purple that takes our awareness and potential to a higher level. From exploring new technologies and the greater galaxy, to artistic expression and spiritual reflection, intuitive Ultra Violet lights the way to what is yet to come.
