In a news article I read recently, automotive paint supplier PPG issued its annual forecast of popular automotive colors and they predict that blues will take on an important role in car styling. The article also stated that DuPont has seen a resurgence of blue being used.
Knowing color trends are important when creating concept artwork. When I was doing research on colors to use for the TATA Nano concept artwork, I noticed a lot of blues being used on many of today’s customized imports. In fact, the purple Nano in the artwork was originally blue until I changed it after deciding to use blue in the background to compliment the TATA logo.
So if blue is going to be the color for the future, what are the top colors now? As far as the top color, silver wins out over all others. The colors after silver are white, black, and red, in that order.
I tried to found more information about PPG’s report on their website, but couldn’t find anything. To read the news article I read, check out “Paint maker PPG sees blue as car color of tomorrow“.
