Design your presentation with Pantone’s Color of the Year 2022 // Very Peri

It seems that there is no return to our old ways of living. The past years have shown us that we need to change and adapt, that we need to act more carefully and invest time in what really matters for each of us, individually. 

Displaying a carefree confidence and a daring curiosity that animates our creative spirit, inquisitive and intriguing PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri helps us to embrace this altered landscape of possibilities, opening us up to a new vision as we rewrite our lives. Rekindling gratitude for some of the qualities that blue represents complemented by a new perspective that resonates today, PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri places the future ahead in a new light.


Very Peri is a color meant to inspire versability and transformative times, it places future times in good light. Reminding us of Ultra Violet, also a color that pointed us toward the future, the 2022 color illustrates especially the dynamic between physical and digital lives

Everyone who wants to keep up with the color institute will use this color in their materials.

The Pantone Color Institute™ is a consulting service that forecasts color trends worldwide. Its advice is sought by brands in matters such as brand identity, and product development, for the application and integration of color as a strategic asset. 

To help you figure out how to apply this color to your upcoming projects and presentations, we’ve rounded up some practical uses of Pantone’s 2022 color, from templates and graphics to helpful tips on how to choose the suitable color scheme.


1. Select your color scheme based on the Color of the Year


If you are not using your brand/your client’s colors, the second option can be using Very Peri. After setting the presentation’s main color, you need to find the color scheme to go with that. An easy-to-use tool for this is the Color Wheel, there you can choose the color combination you like: complementary, monochromatic, analogous, triadic, or tetradic. 

Regardless if you’re aiming for balanced and visually pleasing or for high-contrast and striking color combinations, your color scheme will need to be split into one dominant color — dominant either because of how much it appears in the design, or because of how it stands out in comparison with other colors — and one or more accent colors.

Use tools like Adobe’s Color Wheel or this Color Calculator to see all the color schemes that you can build using Very Peri as the main color.






Pantone also provided a few color palettes that you can explore on their website.
