HOUSTON, Dec. 6, 2023 – The Color Solutions business segment within Vibrantz Technologies recently announced its 2024 Color of the Year. The segment’s color science and commercial teams have chosen “Foggy Forest,” a tranquil grey-green hue that aims to reflect some of the calmness and rejuvenation often found in nature. This organic shade can easily be used in a variety of architectural and industrial paints and coatings applications, helping to create peaceful and relaxing spaces.

Vibrantz’s Color Solutions team releases a global Color of the Year each winter as part of their ongoing work to promote and meet future customer demand by identifying and staying ahead of market trends and encouraging broader and varied use of color in paints, coatings and thermoset plastics markets.

“’Foggy Forest’ is a calming shade that represents well-being and restoration, both important as we enter a new year filled with possibility,” said Alison Clark, global commercial vice president for the Color Solutions segment at Vibrantz. “Daily, our cross-functional teams are immersed in color trends as we provide custom color matches, technical support, product recommendations and construct colorant databases for customers. Our annual color selection process includes thoughtful consideration and trend analysis, and is a wonderful example of the Vibrantz purpose in action as our team remains committed to bringing color, performance and vibrancy to life.” 

In January 2024, Vibrantz will unveil complementary Color of the Year palettes for North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia Pacific to better represent its global customer base. With each utilizing a “Foggy Forest” base, the four unique palettes will represent trending colors prevalent in their respective regions.
