True Colors Toolkit

This tool helps you to expose the dominant frame of thought in your own creative organization. You’re only one step away from more conscious decision-making! The tool covers the creative industries’ three main frames of thought. Keep in mind that these frames are not meant to pigeonhole any of the actors of the industries involved, nor to rank them.
