I have been contributing colour forecasting and palettes for leading stock image provider Shutterstock for the past 5 years. Shutterstock's colour forecasting is based heavily on search data and the colour choices used across websites, apps and social media. In my own forecasting, I look to search data, as well as trends in culture, graphic design, branding, fashion, interiors and product design, to inform the palettes. I also created a special colour series for the Shutterstock blog, looking at the psychology and cultural history behind a rainbow of colours. Read about purple's royal and feminist associations here. Above is a selection of colour palettes I created for Shutterstock, from Mediterranean-inspired earth tones to jewel-like palettes lifted from nature.
