Welcome to the first issue of Viewpoint Colour, created by View Publications and FranklinTill Studio for all colour-conscious industries. Viewpoint Colour offers visual inspiration, design direction and a global perspective on colour; we see it as a sister magazine and perfect complement to our highly successful Viewpoint Design magazine, which is dedicated to product innovation.
In this first issue we explore the theme Neo-Nature and the redefinition of nature and the natural world as we start to witness the long-term effects of human impact on the planet. With ecological and social pressures threatening the production and consumption status quo, designers and material scientists are rising to the challenge of presenting a new landscape for design, converging old skills with new materials and old materials with new skills. The emerging colour landscape is nature engineered, in which resources are reconsidered and future raw material is composed of today’s waste.
