customers needs; and develops appropriate product
strategies to maximize your profit opportunities.

This can range from a general overview of your
product or industry all the way to a major
examination of an entire sector as a whole;
focusing on product categories, specific
industries or general color and design trends and
Forecasting or Trend Analysis
Color and Design - a report identifying color or
design directions for consumer and home
furnishings product areas. This can be cursory or
a full and comprehensive look into the coming
years of color design trends.
Product Line Development
As a color design consultant we evaluate current product lines and works with
you to determine new product lines that can
maximize the use of current materials --textiles,
ceramics, plastics, papers, etc.

current line or a line already in development for
the purpose of identifying voids, but not
After a product line review, this further defines
potential areas of design, provides the design
direction for development and includes the
procurement of specific designs through to final
development and product approvals.
Color Line Development
After a product line review, this phase further defines your potential areas of color design needs and executes a successful color line all the way from specifying recommended color design direction through to final development and product approvals.

This phase is mostly incorporated with the product and color line development since color deletions often leave voids; but as color designers we can address this phase as the "objective" to eliminate additional unprofitable inventories.
A highly rated speaker for many industry events,
we provide a "Trend Tracking" program
which illustrates to attendees how they can track
trends to better understand and predict future
color and design directions.
This is a broad, yet extremely important area of
fulfilling the success of your new or existing
designs. One of our main strengths is to
communicate to your creative staff or agency in a
way that allows them a creative freedom; yet
channels their efforts toward a most successful
direction. We call it Design Parameters --
