As I design repeat patterns for licensing, I take into consideration Color Trends, offering colors that fit into future trends! I'm new at licensing but understand the importance of offering a wide selection of colors! Being an ocean batik artist, I'm also delighted that turquoise is shown, as I have an excellent selection of tropical blue turquoise and aqua patterns that certainly fit in!
"Linked In" has been an extremely helpful resource. 2 informational links regarding Color Trends for 2011 were posted by Alisa Adamson on Linked In and I just have to share them with you! I found both of them to be highly helpful and and affirming! I think I'm on the right track.
