June Program

Global Color & Design Trends

PPG's 2021 Global Color Forecast is researched and identified by PPG's international team of 25+ color experts in automotive, architectural, consumer electronics, industrial, and aerospace spanning 11 countries.

We chose the themes and colors two months before the coronavirus outbreak in early 2020 and found that the societal and emotional touchpoints identified as key influencers
were consistent and even magnified by the pandemic. The 2021 global trends story is titled "Transcend", meaning to go beyond the
range or limit of something; to surpass. Each theme: Be Well, Be True, Be Wild — all seeking pathways to comfort in a very unpredictable world. Be Well takes wellness to a new level where kindness and optimism translates to nuanced, natural colors. Be True digs to find how comfort is found in nostalgia, community and purpose with rich, anchor colors. Be Wild is the antidote to the negativity in the world with activist brights and fun, unconventional
colors from each color family. The year 2021 is about our quest for comfort; the trends stories provide three pathways to get there.


See the global color direction from the three trend stories. Learn the societal trends and materials influencing the color palettes.
Understand how other industries influence architectural preferences. Recognize how the consumer mindset shifted the colors chosen for 2021.
