Dunn-Edwards partners with DTLA Artist Caroline Geys to Create a 2020 Color Experience.

Dunn-Edwards is partnering with Caroline Geys, a Belgian-born artist and designer, to create an interactive and imaginative color experience that will bring these archetypes, and the story of 2020 colors to life in a three-dimensional space for the LA Design Festival.

Each June, Dunn-Edwards releases the Color Trends for the following year. Color expert Sara McLean heads up an exhaustive year-long research and design process to pinpoint what the future holds as expressed through color. The trendsetting color predictions include 60 colors divided into 12 main palettes, demonstrated by five color archetypes. While McLean is mum until the colors are officially released this summer, off the record she predicts that the 2020 colors will reflect tones of optimism for a new decade.
