Annual publication about colour trends in fashion, lifestyle and design for Akzo Nobel Decorative Coatings.
The Colour Envelope is an annual publication dealing with colour trends in fashion, lifestyle and design put out by Akzo Nobel Interpon F Powder Coating, one of the largest mulitinational paint suppliers, and the worlds largest producer of powder coatings. To be responsive to the needs of the industry and the consumer market Akzo Nobel must be up to date on the latest concepts and trends in color. Thus, the Analogue Groep (Analog Group) was created. Each year the expertise of such well-known colourists, trend watchers and designers as Willeke Jongejan (Akzo Nobel), Christiane Müller (Studio’s Müller en van Tol) and Claudia Lieshout (Philips) is brought together to identify upcoming color trends. The outcome of these discussions are mood boards with key words and five to seven corresponding colours that forecast the most important colour trends.
