In what feels like only a blink of an eye, COVID-19 has barged into our lives for two years, and it continues to turn our world upside down. Unknowingly, the distance between people was forced to grow further apart. In a time of such rapidly spreading pandemic, the humankind is experiencing huge life changes caused by it. Warm friendly handshakes and laughter were replaced by cold hard screens and keyboard stroke sounds; in reality, while our mobility has been significantly hampered, we have had to resort to digital networks to stay in contact with the old familiar real world. Fortunately, we have gradually accepted this new life style by now and learned to cope with it.

PANTONE announced its 2022 annual color as "Very Peri", they created a brand new color for the first time. In addition to the original blue color, a purple-red color tone was added. It displays a spritely, joyous attitude and the presence of energy that encourages bold creativity and imaginative expression. It also represents the fused multi-dimensional characteristic of modern life, and the color trend of the digital world.

This is also a state of mind that we deeply empathize with. This year, Accusys will also use Very Peri as the latest annual color. We hope that in the new year, we will discover new directions through exploration, and that we may energize people’s positivity with our extraordinary creativity. While the pandemic has changed our existing lifestyle, it has also created an opportunity for us to explore alternative ways of life – our very own new digital era! Although we may never turn back the clock and return to our old life, yet a new force has emerged; and through it, we can still live ourselves a new and shining life in this great era. The power of innovation is already in our hearts and ready to strike!
