Colour forecasts and analysis

We are colour experts. Our directional and inspirational trend colour palettes are endorsed by an in-depth knowledge of how and why colour families evolve, and how forecast colours are nuanced across global regions.

Because colours are rarely used in isolation, we analyse how their unique properties influence combinations, proportions and applications.

Colour families are tracked across four seasons as an essential planning tool.

MIX Magazine

Colour Hive forecasts are given context through editorial exploring the macro drivers behind the trends and brought to life with original visual concepts and photography.

Published quarterly in print and digital format, Colour Hive members also have exclusive access to the latest trend images, digital colour palettes and the MIX Magazine digital archive.

Each forecast features 200+ credited images from directional designers and creators.

MIX Images

Unique concepts are best communicated through unique images, which is why unlike many other forecasters we create our own.
