The Hurley Report

Trends, Data and Analysis for the Creative Industries.


Welcome to your preview
of the Hurley Report...

Welcome to your preview of the very first edition of The Hurley Report!

The report contains Trends, Data and Analysis for the Creative Industries, including up to the minute trends and knowledge gleaned from my experience and businesses in multiple industries - some of which, I've profiled in the full report - along with data and my own personal insights and analysis.



*please note the spelling of color / colour varies depending on whether the information source is US or UK based.


It's easy to write off colour as a passing trend or fad, but colour trends reflect pretty much everything in society. Following colour trends, you'll see bright colours as we come through difficult times, moody colours during times of instability and harmonious colours as we redress balance.

Watching colour trends and using them correctly can help your products really speak to people throughout their everyday life.
