How Will You Use Pantone’s 2022 Color of the Year in Your Content Marketing Campaign?

December 13, 2021

Stagger has a few ideas to get you started.

The year 2022 is full of 💜 for creatives and content marketing professionals. Pantone’s Color of the Year 2022, Very Peri, encourages inventiveness and creativity. If you’re a small business, there’s nothing better than a bit of inventiveness to invigorate customer demand.

But before we get started, be sure to read why Pantone created Very Peri for 2022.

“We are living in transformative times. PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri is a symbol of the global zeitgeist of the moment and the transition we are going through. As we emerge from an intense period of isolation, our notions and standards are changing, and our physical and digital lives have merged in new ways. Digital design helps us to stretch the limits of reality, opening the door to a dynamic virtual world where we can explore and create new color possibilities.” -Pantone

We couldn’t agree more, so we created two new templates you can use to celebrate this year’s color of the year. Here are some of our ideas on how you can use Very Peri in your next marketing campaign.

For the interior decorator

It’s remarkable what an interior designer can do with a single color. Have you ever designed an entire room around periwinkle? Show off what you can do with a single color as an interior designer. Draft a concept using Very Peri and share it with your audience.

For the psychological product marketer

Place your products on an elegant and luxurious backdrop. Since periwinkle is in the family of both blue and violet, it emotes a sense of calm (from the color blue) and luxury (from purple). Work with a company like Soona to get your product shots on a sleek periwinkle background and see how your customers react.  

For the iron chef

Surprisingly there are some excellent periwinkle-colored foods: ice cream, purple sprouting broccoli, purple potatoes, cabbage, eggplant, mangosteen, elderberries. So add a bit of periwinkle to your rotating menu, then create a clever promotion for a secret menu to get more customers through the door. Feeling generous? Give creative industry customers a discount!

For the agile agency

Have you been put on mute by your favorite clients? Flex your creative muscles and send them a Very Peri greeting. Let them know this is the year to take a creative risk with, who better than, your creative agency. Better yet, work with a company like Gold Belly to send your favorite clients a box of periwinkle macaroons.

For the reactive retailer

The color of the year announcement is out so there’s no time to waste. Build a custom Shopify shop and fill it with your favorite periwinkle items. Then promote your shop on all of your social channels. Don’t have any periwinkle items? No problem. Design your promotion using periwinkle in the content. Then fill your shop with items that evoke innovativeness and creativity. It’s not too late to Have a Very Peri Christmas.

For the SaaS startup

Does your SaaS product have a sleek, customizable user interface? Many interfaces, like Google Chrome, are becoming highly customizable. Create a social campaign to share a periwinkle version of your interface and remind your users how fun it is to give your product a custom touch.

For the thoughtful influencer

In honor of Very Peri, paint your feed periwinkle. Have a conversation with your followers about being creative and innovative. Ask them about their creative ventures and promote your favorite ideas. There are so many great ideas that go unnoticed. Make someone’s day by giving them a little social boost.
