Bayer’s color experts are working with CMG, the Color Marketing Group of Alexandria, VA, a non-profit association of color design professionals. CMG says that up to 85% of the reason people decide to buy is color, and that the trend to bold-and-bright colors is based on the insights of 1000 color experts from a broad cross-section of industries worldwide.



Bayer is a CMG member and develops new additions to its Fantasia color palette from the association’s global color forecasts so Bayer customers can use the emerging trends in their products. Michael George, lab manager at the Bayer Color competence and Design Center in Newark, OH says, "These upbeat colors lend themselves well to bold combinations or as stand-out, stand-alone hues that are fresh and festive."

The five new colors are Candy red, Marina blue, Tortuga green, Twist yellow, and Wysterical purple. They were developed at Bayer’s Newark location, and the company also has Color Competence Centers in Filago, Italy; Map Ta Phut, Thailand; and Guangzhou and Shanghai, China. [email protected]
