It was bound to hap­pen…

The Pan­tone Col­or Insti­tute has announced that they’ve cre­at­ed “a stan­dard­ized cus­tom col­or to rep­re­sent and hon­or inter­na­tion­al icon, Prince.” Called “Love Sym­bol #2”, the col­or (below) draws inspi­ra­tion from Prince’s Yama­ha pur­ple piano. Some­where, Marie Schrad­er is jeal­ous.
