Consciousness Drives 2020+ Colour Trends

On behalf of NCS Colour, A CMG Member-Partner


In celebration of the NCS Colour System’s 40th anniversary they launched a limited-edition of their NCS Colour Trends 2020+ in a unique and extensive format.

Gain insight about the drivers effecting these 2020+ trends and how they will affect future trend movements. Each colour trend is combined with an in-depth story and a unique image collection.


Increased consciousness is the most significant driver. It affects all aspects of life; how we live, how we consume, and how we feel as humans. Within NCS Colour Trends 2020+, four dominating trends are identified based on the most important drivers of today, both independent and interdependent:

Reflecting a Circular Approach


Artificial Intelligence

Being Human

These colour trends are an interesting mix of colours that not only reflect a new era that begins in 2020 but are an important group of colours for the future. Translated into NCS notations, the NCS Colour Trends 2020+ gives you the most important colours to follow across these four different trends:

Evolving Eclecticism

Shades of Incognito

New Masculinity

Human Identity


200 Limited Editions of NCS Colour Trends 2020+ were  released on May 22nd exclusively on NCS Colour’s Online Shop.
