CMG's Forecasts are color "Directions," not directives. The colors selected for CMG's Forecasts show the course that colors are likely to take. Each Forecast is an invaluable tool that members use and interpret for their specific industries and products.
CMG's Directions® Forecasts are colors that have not yet been applied to a particular product and are under consideration for future product introductions.
NOW Color Workshops evaluate colors that are currently identified as "best sellers" in the marketplace or are scheduled to appear in the marketplace in the next product cycle.
This unique method of color forecasting is an ongoing process and begins well before CMG members convene. Conference participants develop individual forecasts that encapsulate a wide variety of influences or trends that each Color Designer identifies within his or her industry.
CMG members from around the world collaborate during the International Conference to analyze color trends.
Color Forecast Workshops take place concurrently in which CMG members interpret the direction of color and influences ranging from the economy, the environment, politics, sports, demographics, social issues, technology to cultural events, worldwide.
Following a day-long discussion of the many influences on colors and the shifts likely to occur in the coming years, a Color Forecast is developed from each of the Workshops.
Through a Steering Committee, these Workshop Forecasts are consolidated into a final Forecast which is distributed in digital format to each participant at the end of the Conference. CMG members and Conference participants also receive a printed color card of each forecast color.
