Last week Pantone announced it was paying tribute to Prince in the biggest way. The company synonymous with color teamed up with the Prince Estate to announce that Prince was receiving his own honorary color. Prince, a.k.a. “Love Symbol #2” is a blue-based purple inspired by the singer's custom-made Yamaha purple piano that was originally scheduled to go on tour with him prior to his passing last year, the company said in a release.
As everyone knows, Prince and the color purple became intertwined throughout his career from "Purple Rain" to his extravagant costumes. This particular shade of purple was created to convey the same "mystery, intrigue and unconventionality" that Prince did and thus will be the official color used across the brand he left behind, Pantone and the Prince Estate say.
