    Color Forecasting and Creative Design

    Color is one of the most important elements, especially in our world today. Color influences everything from the environment in which people live, including industrial products and packaging to fashion, food, and technology – as well as framed art. More than ever, color trend forecasts are important in selecting images and designs of framed art.

    Because color is purely visual, it is necessary to combine it with form and design. This leads to a very definitive impact on the senses in a practical way. Did you know that color can be up to 85% of the reason that people decided to buy – whether it be clothing, furniture, to art and framing too?

    For this year, the color is Tangerine Tango. “Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it, ” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone  Color Institute. “Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.”


    Pantone annually announces a particular color as “Color of the Year”. This color is chosen to ostensibly connect with the spirit of the times. Pantone’s forecasts show up in markets across North America and impact buying decisions in consumer goods, from images and framed art to accessories, automobiles, fashion, and textiles.
