Stay together while apart by participating in our ColorChat™ monthly events and weekly InstaLive chats.
At Color Marketing Group® we strive to not only remain connected but to thrive in these unusual and unprecedented times. Our Virtual ChromaZone® Color Forecasting Workshops have allowed us to remain connected with you all and at the same time to keep color forecast information in your hands. Our ColorSpeak™ webinar series offers single-topic webinars on a multitude of color design subjects, delivered by CMG industry leaders. CMG’s Board of Directors has also been exploring fresh ways to foster dialogue about color design. With that, we are delighted to launch our monthly ColorChat™ series.
While in-person events are one of the best ways for us to connect with one another, ColorChat™ keeps us connected virtually. ColorChat™ offers digital video discussions and live Instagram chats on all topics of color design, CMF design, future trends, and more. Our monthly Zoom chats will be led by CMG’s Immediate Past President, Judith van Vliet, and CMG’s Board member, Kiki Redhead. They are casual, informal, informative, and FREE! Our weekly Instagram LIVE chats will be conducted by CMG member, Mercedes Landázuri who will put CMG members “on the spot” with a fun, live interview on a wide range of topics. Follow us at @colorsells for regular updates.
