Every year since 2000, Pantone Inc., creators of the popular PMS standardized color system, chooses an emerging color they believe is rising in popularity in the creative fields.
Last year, they bestowed the honor to “Emerald”. In 2014, it’s a bright purple color they’re calling “Radiant Orchid”.

Using Shades of Purple Similar to Radiant Orchid
Dribbble allows you to filter results based on color, so I used the Radiant Orchid hexadecimal color code —
#B163A3 — to find the designs below.
Note that these designs don’t color-match with Radiant Orchid quite exactly, and can vary in shade by up to 50%. So I placed a Radiant-Orchid-colored border around them for your reference.
