ColorVoyant 2013 Annual Color Trends Forcast

ColorVoyant explores the theme of Fusion in its 2013 Annual Color Trend Forecast for design-related venues and companies. Company founder Doty Horn fuses together emerging trends and common threads from the worlds of art, fashion and pop culture – and offers her perspective that both honors the past and braces for the future.

 

Visionary Color Marketing comes naturally to Horn, who draws upon decades of design industry experience, most recently as the Director of Color and Design for Benjamin Moore.  "Individual interactions and events, viewed in aggregate, roll up into a world view and collective business outlook says Horn.  " I paint the broad strokes and expose the big picture from which specific color marketing strategies evolve."

 

1 CEU credit pending from IIDA for Color Voyant 2013.
