One of the most complex elements of design, colour is also what people respond to first on an emotional level, so an understanding of how it works, and how to make it work for you, is one of the most valuable assets available to a visual professional. The Ultimate Guide to Colour is comprehensive, offering informative techniques, examples, inspiration and exemplary solutions to fit the designers every need, whatever their discipline. Working successfully with colour in a global community involves understanding colour theory and psychology, and geographical and historical references. This information is covered authoritatively, with clear explanations and examples. Beautifully illustrated with over 300 colour images, The Ultimate Guide to Colour removes the grey areas from the full colour world of contemporary design, and provides designers from all disciplines with everything they need to become true, confident colourists.
