We look forward to a post-pandemic world. Forward to the year 2022, our mindset, behavior, and mood will largely be a consequence of what we have been through during these exhausting and uncertain times.”

 The NCS color trend forecast team has identified four main directions that drive the colors into certain areas. These four directions are named Zience, One, Spring Rebels, and Zero.

ZIENCE – Meditating About Life

The pandemic has made us reflect on things, more than we perhaps are used to. The time spent at home has given us time to think over both personal and spiritual matters. We embrace the present moment and wish to direct our focus to everything real. We listen first and foremost to our inner self and the truth revealed by science or the universe.

SPRING REBELS – Expressions of Joy

A new world is beginning. After a long period of fake truths, isolation, fears, and uncertainties, we finally open our doors to a new world of freedom, comfort, truths, and the possibility of physically meeting others. Perhaps the world is not ready yet. But we want it to be ready. It needs to be about happiness and joy.

ZERO – A Brand-new Start

We are at the beginning of a new and better world. We reset our minds and start over again; this time more consciously and positively for our planet. The beginning is neutral, with the first steps into a color direction – we begin from zero.
