orchid-226x300 Radiant Orchid has been chosen as the IT color for 2014. As stated in Pantone’s press release, this shade of purple has “an enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”

I couldn’t be happier as this is one of my favorite colors! Let’s see how this choice influences design in the coming year.

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Andy Warhol’s 1962 32 Campbell’s Soup Cans piece, Campbell’s released a limited edition collection of soup cans featuring pop art labels from original Warhol artwork.
