Paint company Cin developed a Facebook app named Colour Maker and invited fans to collaborate and create a selection of new colours for the brand. The brand then launched a catalogue of the top 25 colours with information about their creator and where the new colours could be purchased.

Why it matters

The marketing of paint brands can be rather straightforward. However, this app makes the most of people who use paints beside big companies: artists or DIY lovers who like to personalise their homes and spaces. By letting the customers define the trends and crowdsourcing consumer likes, the brand managed to get insightful market research. Which other brands could open up their organisations and R&D to produce more collaborative commerce?
