Membership Information


CMG's International Meetings,  ChromaZone Color Forecasting Workshops & the annual International Summit  provide Workshop exchanges on the direction of color and design around the world.  CMG encourages your participation at these events to grow the value of your membership and expand your color tribe.   By participating side-by-side with fellow color professionals you glean valuable information.  Your participation enriches both yourself, fellow members, and assures a high-quality Color Forecast.  You'll validate your own color choices, hear color stories in your industry and others, and learn about new trends and colors that can immediately be applied to your products.  Besides, where else can you mix and mingle with leading product and industrial design professionals, art and graphic designers, color and trend specialists, CMF Specialists and more?  The short answer?  Nowhere.  When searching for a global professional-development and networking community, we are the obvious choice.  CMG is the perfect fit for the aspiring designer and the established professional.
