Fall 2010 Color Forecast
Lets face it, trends are a big deal. So in February when Pantone (a global company who is best known for its Pantone Matching System (PMS), a proprietary color space used mainly by the printing industry) announces their new color forecast for the upcoming year, graphic designers and fashionistas begin buzzing about the possibilities.
I love looking at the new colors and as we approach those Fall months I find myself comparing what I see in print and on shelves, with the handful of colors those Pantone designers have forecasted. Perhaps we could begin a "Color Madness" pool, a mere month before March Madness, and begin to wager on what the hottest color will be six months from now?
All bets aside, whether you're ordering your company's Christmas cards or buying new pillows this Fall, at least you will have a leg up on the best picks.
