Colour Combos. Methods in design education.

Publikation: KonferencebidragPaperForskningpeer review


This paper concerns the on-going development of a methological tool for design students to be used in the creation of colour palettes. The project holds both didactic and colour theoretical considerations. The observation of students’ work with colour at Designskolen Kolding shows that their approach to creating palettes is often highly intuitive. The majority of students tend to forget colour theory later in their studies and therefore do not make qualified colour choices in their design projects. Since a design process is influenced and controlled by various methods, the project investigates whether a defined methodology can be developed and implemented in the work with colour palettes in order to give more quality to the design of colour schemes. The methodology is presented to the students as method cards that can be combined and applied at different phases in the design process.
