We’d like to introduce you to the Plascon Trends team who will be posting about “everything you need to know to bring colour to your life”!
Zurita Moore recently took over the role of editor on the Plascon Trends blog. Zurita has worked for Kansai Plascon for just over 5 years, starting her journey at the Plascon Design Centre in Cape Town. She moved to Johannesburg a little over two years ago as the Plascon Spaces Showroom manager and moved over to the Marketing team in July 2015 as Corporate Communications and Digital Media Manager. Zurita loves colour, and as an amateur “DIY-ster” we can see that there will be lots of inspiration and interesting posts coming your way.
Plascon’s very own Colour Manager, Anne Roselt, is the driving force behind the Plascon Spaces magazine and website; she is also responsible for putting together the Plascon Colour Forecast every year. Anne’s background is as a decorative artist which “instilled a love and appreciation of colour” in her. She has been a member of the panel of the International Colour Authority since 2001 (one of the oldest and most respected colour trend publications) and has been involved with Decorex since the event’s inception in South Africa. Suffice it to say, that if you had to pick ten women in South Africa who really understand colour and décor, Anne Roselt would be among them… And now you, our readers, have the opportunity to hear directly from Plascon’s resident colour expert every Friday.

Currently the Cape Town Senior Décor consultant for Plascon, Kerstin has been in the design and décor industry for more than two decades – having previously worked in the film and photography industry, and as a Senior Décor Stylist and Johannesburg Bureau Chief of ELLE Decoration magazine for about 10 years prior to her appointment at Plascon’s Freeworld Design Centre. In the words of Kerstin: “I feel excited about how design impacts our lives, and not only from an aesthetic point of view. With the aid of information technology, we are exposed to a world of different cultures and their creative stimuli – allowing trends to cross borders. In addition, décor and fashion trends are intrinsically impacted by what is happening in our world; they are constantly evolving according to the times and needs. Luckily I get to be a part of this world and observe its evolution … And then there is colour, which brings all these creative industries together. Lucky me, I get to work with it every day!”

He studied Journalism and Media Studies at Rhodes University – specialising in broadcast (radio), new media (multimedia) and design. He has worked as a design sub-editor, technology columnist and multimedia journalist and currently works as a freelance webmaster, web designer, SEO Specialist and writer. Galen is all things geek (and has a cool beard).
