COLOR APPLICATIONS WORKSHOPS
If you’ve been to a Summit before, you know that our Color Applications Workshops encapsulate the core of what the International Summit is about. Global inter-industry teams will share how colors from CMG’s 2020+ World Color Forecast™ (which includes the North American Forecast), as well as the three International Forecasts (Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America), are being applied in current design projects.
It’s a tidal wave of exposure, learning, and collaboration that unites us as color professionals and makes each of us stronger.
Color, Material, and Finish Workshop
If your responsibilities include not only a color decision but also the identification of key color, material, and finish (CMF), this Workshop is for you. Join innovative suppliers, product developers, and designers to discuss the multi-dimensions of color, material, and finish, and explore how new processes driving the need for new colors and applications.
Participants in this Color Applications Workshop will identify future CMF trends and how they might influence the new 2020+ CMG’s World Color Forecast™.
Goal – the outcome of this Color Applications Workshop will explore the future of color, material, and finish (CMF), particularly within the consumer goods, appliance, transportation, furniture, and sporting-good industries.
Colors in Home
Home is where the heart is! We spend a lot of time at home with our families and friends. The colors we select for our interior decoration need to harmonize and inspire us to live well. This includes coverings for walls, ceilings, floors, windows, and doors. And decorative items such as pillows, drapes, and vases all contribute to a balanced home interior.
Participants in this Workshop will use colors from the new 2020+ CMG World Color Forecast™ to identify three to five color palettes most suitable for the home industry.
Goal – the outcome of this Color Applications Workshop is to determine the colors that will be seen in residential markets.
Colors in Combination
Colors love to play with other colors, and as color professionals, we love to be a part of that process. Participants in this Workshop will use colors from the new 2020+ CMG World Color Forecast™ to determine three to five palettes. You will create forward-thinking, directional color combinations for home décor, transportation, consumer products and technology industries.
Goal – the outcome of this Color Applications Workshop is to generate fresh and inspirational color combinations that can be applied in the relevant industries.
Colors in Contract
Explore the nuance of color and color combinations. This Color Applications Workshop includes all contract design markets, such as commercial, hospitality, healthcare, education, multifamily residential and more.
Armed with the new 2020+ CMG World Color Forecast™, participants in this Workshop will identify the colors that will be important in contract markets, how they’ll be used, and why. Colors not included in the forecast can be added as necessary to illustrate a trend.
Goal – the outcome of this Color Applications Workshop will help color designers interpret CMG palettes for contract.
Each year hundreds of color professionals gather to forecast color directions at CMG’s ChromaZone® Color Forecasting Workshops and Conferences. Forecasted 2 years in advance, CMG’s World Color Forecast™ colors are often applied to products and design by early adopters ahead of the period for which the forecast applies.
Participants to this Workshop will use 2019+ CMG’s World Color Forecast™ to validate the colors that have been adopted early and are already appearing in the market in a variety of industries.
Goal – the outcome of this Color Applications Workshop is to assess and validate the 2019+ CMG’s World Color Forecast™ in comparison to the colors adopted early in the market and identify in what markets they are being spotted.
