Colour | Design Speaks – Melbourne

It was great to participate in this Design Speaks Artichoke talk in Melbourne – Colourful language: Space and colour at Space Furniture, 15 August 2018. The speakers also included Sonia Simpfendorfer of Nexus Designs and Jean-Pierre Biasol of Biasol Design Studio.

Colourful language: Space and colour was organised by Design Speaks in conjunction with Architecture Media. My evidence-based article of the same title will be published in the Design Institute of Australia’s magazine, Artichoke, December 2018.

My presentation looked at evidence-based colour/materials/finishes strategies to attract, encourage and enhance engagement. I also focused on strategies to support inspiration and creativity in the workplace plus ways to increase a sense of excitement or a sense of calm. Colour strategies that support orientation and wayfinding were also included in the presentation.
