CARE + COLLABORATE originated from the idea of providing as many people as possible with encouraging and easily applicable inspiration. Targeted and responsible colour selection can reduce emotional and physical effects and be supportive. We are sharing our knowledge about constructive colour design and look forward to seeing your applications. Please use the hashtag #colourfeeling to share your work with the RAL COLOUR FEELING trend colours.
The Trendmemo info-graphics show which mega-, macro- and microtrends we have taken into account when making our decisions to select the 15 colours for CARE + COLLABORATE. We use several methods to forecast trends so that we can offer relevant colour suggestions with long-term value.
The colours selected for the trend report are based on observing and assessing social, technological, economic and design trends over the last 60 years. The colour spectrum which has been developed also refers to fundamental design categories and detailed studies on the effect and perception of colour.
You can find all the colours in the RAL DESIGN SYSTEM plus. The colour system, which includes 1,825 nuances, enables accurate colour communication and true-to-colour implementation worldwide.
The RAL COLOUR FEELING series is intentionally less time-related than publications with a pure focus on short-term trend colours. Our aim is not to define inflexible colours but rather to develop an up-to-date to future-proof colour profile, which creates design possibilities rather than reducing them.
