Thinking in Color

Agency: Wunderman


Thinking in Color is the first user generated content color spectrum ever created as an immersive experience to inspire creativity by actually visualizing the colors your mind creates.
Sherwin-Williams is obsessed with color and innovation. They don’t just see color, they see color as an immersive experience. Thinking in Color is the first ever opportunity to actually experience colors created by the mind. Collaborating with Wunderman Minneapolis, the team created from scratch brain-wave monitoring technology to generate hues based on brain activity. In real-time, the brain-wave monitoring headset translates brainwave activity and then visualizes the data into unique colors experiences.
Since its debut, Thinking in Color has been creating unique colors from 16 million possibilities, for over 2,000 participants. These unique experiences helped create the first ever Architect Series from Sherwin-Williams, a twelve-color chip set inspired by the minds of architects.
