All about Viva Magenta
First things first, let’s get it right. The hex code for this color is #BE3455 and the Pantone color code is 18-1750. This vibrant red color gets its shade from the cochineal beetle; this beetle produces carmine dye which is used in coloring things red. This particular color connects us to the original matter. It descends from the red family, and the color red is known to celebrate life and is associated with a feeling of fun. It’s a powerful color that has the ability to self-express. It stands out, but is inclusive to everyone.
