Based in Alexandria, Va., Color Marketing Group® is the leading international association of color design professionals. The association’s members include designers, color scientists, consultants, educators and artists from a broad spectrum of industries, including furniture, rugs and floor coverings, wall coverings, automotive, and paint/coatings.
To gain insight into the most important new directions in color, “CMG holds a series of local and international ChromaZone® Color Forecasting Workshops and Conferences each year in locations throughout North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia Pacific,” Green said. Members come together at these events to share color research, collaborate on color direction, forecast and select colors with the goal of enhancing the quality and marketability of manufactured goods.
“At our CMG ChromaZones, Conferences and Summit, the world’s leading color design professionals gather to share their views on which specific ‘trend drivers’ and color directions are likely to have the most influence on future product design in the next two years,” Green said. “By continuously collaborating, we can develop an accurate and relevant picture of where color is heading.”
