Workshop 5 – Colour for designers

The colour wheel, and the theory behind the grouping of colours used in the design industry

Colour is the most effective tool in design but also sometimes the least understood.

This workshop explains how designers use knowledge of the spectrum by showing learners how to create their own colour wheel using primary, secondary and tertiary colours, The workshop then goes on to explore the terminology and theory of grouping colours when designing schemes, such as complementary or harmonious, and how these schemes are used in design. An essential part of the designer’s toolkit, and fun to learn.
