The 2019 Global Color Forecast is researched and identified by PPGs international team of color experts and specialists. This presentation unravels the moods, mindsets and design directions behind the entire forecast, but the overarching mood that prevails is one of togetherness and community. Whereas in the past we noticed singular consumer trends, we now note that journeys are of collective discovery.
The overarching title this year is WE ARE – an undercurrent of fresh optimism evident in consumer behavior despite the level of political turmoil and argument brought about by social media. We Are beginning to redefine what luxury means; others are creating a less showy or private experience for consumers. We Are also quietly powerful. There is an interest in simplicity and austerity evident and trending in every industry (automotive, fashion, fixture/décor, architecture, consumer products, technology, etc.)
At the end of this session, you will:
- Discover the global color direction from the four trends themes.
- Explain the societal trends and materials influencing the color palettes.
- Recognize how the mindset change of consumers shifted the colors chosen for 2019.
