2016 COLOR TRENDS & MOOD BOARDS FOR DESIGN PROJECTS is your free copy from RudeColor for instant color & design inspiration this coming year. At rudecolor.com, we are passionate about helping designers with information and resources to arrive at the right color schemes using tools such as mood boards and color trend forecasts.
In 2016, we see the world viewed through a filtered lens of muted and dusky tones. The widespread usage of mobile phones enables a global population to keep in touch with all things local. Exotic vibrants from the east and icy tones from the west come together in a sensorial rush of moods and emotions. The shadow of war in certain regions leads us to yearn for warm hues peppered with ethnic accents representing a growing sense of tolerance and understanding. Ecology continues to play a significant role and is represented by fresh greens and coastal blues.
To showcase each color trend, we have used a mood board format. Each mood board showcases reference images, keywords and color schemes with hex values – as a quick and ready reference for any design project. In our experience, mood boards are a great tool for creative collaboration and can be shared with colleagues and clients to indicate a design direction.
