Summary "From products we use to clothes we wear, and spaces we inhabit, we rely on color to provide visual appeal, data codes and meaning. Color and Design addresses how we understand and experience color, and through specific examples explores how color is used in a spectrum of design-based disciplines including apparel design, graphic design, interior design, and product design. Through highly engaging contributions from a wide range of international scholars and practitioners, the book explores color as an individual and cultural phenomenon, as a pragmatic device for communication, and as a valuable marketing tool."-- Provided by publisher.
