The Language of Color

Selecting colors that match can be a challenge to design professionals, who will learn in this course, the language of color and a scientific numeric system for color control. Interactive exercises demonstrate the subjectivity of visual color selection and the factors that influence color. When specifying color the design professional will learn the importance of stringent color tolerances on raw materials, color checks at various stages of the manufacturing process as well as uniform numeric standards. By learning the science of color, and the importance of manufacturer controls, the design professional can eliminate costly project errors and meet design objectives.
