Since its inception in 2004, MIX Magazine has carved a successful niche as a source of accurate and tangible colour, trend and material forecasting information used as a main reference by the design sector. This unique publication will guide you through the new trends for the season, both 1 and 2 years ahead, help you understand the trend gathering process, focusing on key industry and social drivers, plus will look at the way these trends will be disseminated into the mass market by early adopters all with vibrant colours, realistic textures and first generation imagery.
In MIX Magazine we aim not to just chart the process of trends but also clarify them explaining where these ideas have come from and also how they are impacting the market. We speak with design teams, analyse colour trends from trade shows and exhibitions and also report on inspirational materials.
Digital subscribers to MIX can also download the free 'Exactly' app to read the magazine on iPhone and iPad.
Android owners can also access the magazine with the 'Exactly' Android app. Click here to download.
Two macro trends dominating design at the moment, sustainability and escapism inform our latest SS 2021 trends, Clarity and Alice in this issue.
Despite its twin drivers of pollution and resource shortages, Clarity celebrates design at its most optimistic, a belief that solutions can be found. Ironically perhaps then that Alice, for all its bright colours and dream-like imagery better expresses the fear that solutions might not be possible. As this idea raises existential fears about our future, the desire for escapism and comfort grows exponentially.
