Become An Exceptional Designer - Michael Dean

Lecture ONE: Colour Is Perhaps The Most Powerful Tool At A Designers Disposal

It affects our emotions and can convey any mood from delight to despair. Because the possibilities of colour are endless, the art of using colour well is an open-ended and complex discipline, which naturally incorporates many different points of view and poses many different questions.

Scientists have tried for centuries to understand what creates colours and how and why we see them. Colour theorists have condensed the infinite number of visible colour variations into a few basic colours and formed theories about their relationship. However it is hard to satisfactorily explain all colour phenomena.

Colour is one of the constants in our lives. We learn, work, live and sometimes even dream in colour. From the time we wake up to the time we go to sleep, we live among the ever-changing colours around us. Colour is a direct result of chemical and physical relationships to light. All colour is sourced through light. Without light colour does not exist.

Colour is like the air we breathe -we don't truly appreciate it or even fully realise it is there until we begin to think about it in a serious context like decorating. Colour has always been the designers’ most powerful, versatile and evocative tool. It is also the cheapest and the quickest way of changing an environment. Yet most people find working with colour intimidating, confusing and even scary.

Imaginative and satisfying colours generally cost no more than safe pedestrian colour choices. Hesitant designers collect paint swatches by the dozen, magazine pictures and references, carpet and textile cuttings and then spend hours agonizing over the outcome, and usually in desperation they stay within safe colour boundaries by using nondescript colours which always include magnolia, ivory, cream and white, that often end in a disappointing result.

Lecture THREE: Confidence In Handling Colour Comes With Practice And Experience

Many elements go into the successful design of a space, whether commercial or domestic. One of the most important is colour. Used strategically, colour can visually reshape a space to feel less constrained, more comfortable or better proportioned. Particular colours can also reflect a particular design style or period. It is the one thing we can most easily control, and often with remarkable results.

The effect of painting a room is far greater than simply just colouring the walls. The colour interacts with light and all the other elements in creating an atmosphere. Strategic use of colour can mask structural difficulties, and highlight architectural triumphs, celebrate the character of a place or
