Color Strategy, Forecasting and Expressions:

When you’re selecting colors for a project, do you go with your gut or do you have a solid color strategy? If you’re winging it—and even if you aren’t—you can learn a lot from Landor Associates’ color expert, Jack Bredenfoerder. He’ll share his five key components of forming a compelling color strategy and explain how he creates a color forecast that looks beyond the current market trends. You’ll get to see examples of good color usage and discover great ideas for working with color that you can apply to your own projects. All attendees will also receive a copy of Jack's 2011 color forecast. Click here to register for The Dieline Conference today!
