Inspiring Cultures – 2012 Colour Forecasting
Written By: Gwen Prince
Inspiring Cultures is a unique collaboration that brings together architects, artists, designers and colour experts from the US, Canada, Mexico and South America in a true reflection of the Comex Group spirit.
Working together at the Inspiring Cultures colour meetings, which have been held in the US, Mexico and Canada, the distinguished panel identify key future information on colour, application, combination and texture.
The result is the perfect working tool for any colour design professional with key trends 12 – 18 months in advance of the markets to assist, stimulate, inform and inspire your business’ future.
