largeHave you noticed that the RVA Startup Weekend color palette is a little... purple? Very different from last year's green! That's because we chose to use the 2014 Pantone Color of the year: Radiant Orchard.

"Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence Screen Shot 2014-08-20 at 9.08.14 PMand magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple—one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health."

How could we say no to a color that "intrigues the eye and sparks imagination"!? This year's images are all thanks to the team at Campfire & Co. Feel free to share them, and don't forget to get our Twibbon!
