Forecasting Color for 2020  |  Pasadena, CA

June 2018: Design Spectrum attended this years CMG ChromaZone 2018. The workshop was a collaboration of industry experts and product design students forecasting color for 2020.  Our team gathered research based on the industrial design- architect- hospitality markets, then our impressions for possible future colors and shared them with the event members.


At the end of the day our team was lucky enough to have one of our colors chosen as the workshop's key color.

Key Color: SKYLINE
