Industrial Trend Forecast: Empower
Sherwin-Williams DesignHouse for Performance Coatings Trend Forecast, published in 2019, is a collection of individual and complementary colors for utilization throughout the next 3-5 years. Connecting each of the three macro trend themes — Explore, Escape and Empower — are familiar topics examined in a new light, slowly burning while evolving, signaling a spark into the future. Bold and bright reds and blues from the trend theme, Explore, have solidified their place in history, but today, a color shift is in order. As a symbol of unification, a grounding natural tone anchors the necessary balance of power and play.
