Behr voyage 1

NEWS – Gadgeteers always have a critical eye for detail.  Do you have some time off this summer and are you looking to travel the US and Canada for free, and pocket a cool $10,000? Behr Paint Company, one of the largest manufacturers of paints, primers, decorative finishes, stains, and surface preparation products in the US, Canada, and Mexico markets is looking for someone with a critical eye for color this summer.

Behr is looking for one Color Explorer to travel across the United States and Canada this summer. You will seek inspiration from colorful places to create, and the even more fun part – name, real brand new Behr paint colors.  I’m thinking of things like “Pocket Protector White” and “Gadgeteer Gunmetal”, but the person chose will likely come up with much more colorful ideas.

The Behr Color Explorer will get the opportunity to kayak the glacial blues of Lake Louise in Banff, people-watch at a vibrant music festival, take in the bold exteriors of Charleston’s Rainbow Row and more. Flights, lodging, and experiences are all covered by Behr.

After the tour is over, the Behr Color Explorer will be tasked with developing and naming new paint colors with the brand’s Color Marketing team at their Orange County, California headquarters.

The expectations for the Explorer will be:

  • Traveling to colorful destinations across the United States and Canada
  • Capturing detailed field notes and photos of the color inspiration discovered at each stop
  • Sharing the color exploration journey on social media and the Colorfully, BEHR blog
  • Leveraging these findings to create and name beautiful new Behr Paint colors

Applicants ready for a colorful summer should visit and tell Behr what color inspires them most and why, in 150 words or less, by May 15, 2019. Applicants must be at least 21 years of age and a resident of the continental U.S. or Canada, with a valid passport. The selected Behr Color Explorer will be notified on or around May 23, 2019.

Got the itch and the eye?  Go for it!  I’m sure you will come up with something much better than “Owww! Whacked My Thumb Blue”.
