As designers, artists, marketers, and innovators working across the world in a spectrum of industries, we are united by our desire to create. Creativity solves problems, stimulates our senses, and brings forth boundless new ideas. As creators we open ourselves to new and different ways of thinking, pushing the boundaries of possibility and reaching beyond our horizons. We are inspired by knowledge, insight, and information.
Expand your horizons and get creative with us this November 3-4.
Join us to experiment, explore, question, and imagine!
If you shared in our experience last year you'll know it's so much more than a live stream. Share in the future of color by participating in this collaborative and interactive experience during which we'll reveal the latest color trends for 2023 and beyond gathered during our global in-person and virtual color forecasting events. This year our Summit will welcome even more of our members from far and wide to enter the conversation for a truly global experience. We'll offer topic-focused virtual networking events with luminaries in the color design field. We'll share insights, exchange ideas, and, above all, chat about color!
