The use of colour has always been an essential piece of any successful brand strategy or design product because it goes far beyond mere aesthetics. The right colour choice impacts customers’ experience, sales and profits. While the general rules of colour usage in design are easy to remember, current and future trends can be harder to predict. 

During the workshop, Cora Collins will give you insights into the process of colour trends and forecasting to market to new and existing clients and identify the colour trends of 2023 which will further allow you to successfully advise, please and attract your customers.
