DayGlo Highlights Color Trends and Singles out Magenta

Posted: January 17, 2011

When you think “color,” your thoughts may turn to inks or children’s toys, but start looking for bright shades in the food aisle of your local supermarket next year. And though blue may be the world’s most popular color, the one to watch for 2011 is actually Magenta.
Color trends are on the change, according to DayGlo Color Corp.’s Brand Action Team, which uses its experience in dyes, pigments, and inks to companies gain recognition and traction for their products and build strong, lasting brand identities through color.
Looking at customer purchases and orders in 2010, the DayGlo Team has picked up on some interesting trends in terms of color usage. Magenta is the next “it” color. DayGlo’s magenta shades are some of their best selling, and the popularity only seems to grow. From cosmetics, where magentas offer exceptional iridescence, to print media, where they stand out against almost any other shade, DayGlo says that magenta is the one to watch.
DayGlo’s recent announcement of new palettes that meet FDA standards for direct food contact allows brands to introduce new products or refresh packaging formats with fluorescent colors that are safe for food and beverage contact. Expect to see both vibrant and subtle colors in food packaging at the local supermarket as DayGlo’s GloPrill and Gem-Tone palettes enable brand owners to achieve the product demand and differentiation they need to succeed.
Composed of DayGlo marketing, business development and technical experts, the Brand Action Team offers considerable experience in helping From concept to production, designers, and brand owners can work with the Team in the creation and development of products, packaging, and media platforms to ensure color consistency, which is paramount to building brands and, ultimately, driving sales.
