Global Aesthetic Center
ColourFutures™ – expert analysis of social, economic and design trends
Consumers and customers worldwide find inspiration in our annual global trend research. ColourFutures lays the foundation for Color of the Year and its supporting color palettes, and is at the very heart of the team’s work at the Global Aesthetic Center.
By using an attached spectrophotometer you can match customer samples and create custom color formulations. The software allows you to make adjustments to the formulations to achieve an accurate match. You can then store your formulations in the software’s custom color library for later use.
Color made easy
In addition to trend color updates, the system comes with a vast library of validated color formulations that you can quickly access and dispense. MaestroHue also gives you the ability to create new custom colors, and reproduce them with accuracy as needed.
This gives you access to a new business model in an efficient way – your own custom color program with quick turn-around for color matching and manufacturing. Additionally, you can produce the volume needed for a job with minimal waste, and maintain better inventory management.
MaestroHue® color matching software
Our proprietary color software is powerful, yet easy to learn. Its user-friendly interface makes it simple to operate and get accurate results. The software works in conjunction with tint dispensing equipment that outputs the proper formulation at the click of a button.
The COROB™ TATOCOLOR compact automatic dispenser is the perfect balance of performance and reliability. For over 20 years, the TATOCOLOR has proven its efficiency, accuracy and ability to eliminate the inefficiencies associated with manual dispensing by virtually eliminating human error.
The X-Rite Ci™51 Spectrophotometer is a versatile instrument for reliable paint matching on a wide variety of sample sizes, shapes, textures, and opacity levels. The unit can be used as a tethered handheld device or mounted for small-footprint benchtop use.
Our customers will have full support of our lab. Whether you need help with accurately matching one color or need us to match your colors for you, we’re here to support you.
Secure cloud backup
You don’t have to worry about keeping off-site backups of your valuable custom formulation library – the software will periodically back itself up to online cloud storage. This ensures that your custom formulations will always be safe and easily recoverable. Only you will have access to your custom colors.
