Color is like a language because it’s one of our most basic means of communication. To achieve the best results in use of color, it must be understood as well as experienced. In this course, participants will be introduced to the basic dynamics of color, its principles, fundamentals, psychology and applications. Feras Irikat will examine the impact of visual systems, light and texture on color in the design environment. Feras will lead a presentation outlining the basics of color theory and psychology followed by an engaging discussion of how to decode colors down to their original DNA.
