Course Overview

Colours for Designing

What is Colour Design?

Colour Design is about understanding the psychology of colour and the application of colour to wide-ranging environments. This knowledge be applied to commercial or residential design projects, corporate marketing and branding, colour development for product ranges, and product design.

So how can I become a Colour Designer?

One of the world’s leading online training providers, Global Edulink, provides the answer. When you study our Colours for Designing course, you first gain the fundamentals of colour and design. Then you will build on this foundation to develop extensive knowledge and skills in applying colour to provide impact. You will also look at which colours make up the colour wheel and chart and how these colours can be applied in design. The technicalities are also considered, with a focus on warm versus cool colours. Effective use of colour is also important – which colours work well together in which settings, and which do not. You will also learn what different colours mean. Finally, distinct roles are highlighted (make-up artist, personal stylist, and event planner), and how these professionals use colour to fantastic effect in their work.
