This integrated exploration of color and light incorporates not only the basics of color harmony and usage, but also information on the vast and often hidden ways in which color affects our everyday lives--culturally, psychologically, and physiologically. This book spans a wide range of design areas and focuses on an understanding of the concepts of color and its applications to all aspects of life, including health, aesthetics, interiors, architecture, fashion, graphics, and more. Research based, this book is organized by an aligned learning method that presents core content, provides reinforcement assignments, and then tests only on that information. This second edition adds 200 new color images selected for their relationship to design. Also, the back of the book now includes a comprehensive set of tutorials and a workbook designed for experiential learning.
