Redrawing the Color Map

October 22, 2014

The Interior Design Program is offering a new course in spring 2015. ADVANCED COLOR: STRATEGIES AND SOLUTIONS redraws the color map by connecting dots between disciplines, offering an integrated model with practical tools required to transform design challenges into successful creative platforms - featuring color as a complex multi-sensory instrument of communication.


The course serves as a foundation for students to gain insight into effective color management and practice fundamental color principles. Physiological, psychological, and cultural aspects of color are explored in relation to anthropology, architecture, art, communications, interior design, industrial design, healthy environments, marketing, neuroscience, and psychology.
