I had the opportunity of presenting my ongoing research study on environmental visual literacy at AIC2018, the annual conference of the International Colour Association. The conference was held in Lisbon, 25-28 September 2018.
In the paper ‘Environmental visual literacy: Examining the roles of colour and contrast’, I discussed the ways in which colour and contrast enhance environmental visual literacy. Robust environmental visual literacy is particularly important in supporting orientation and wayfinding initiatives, and safety measures, especially for older people and those with declining visual and cognitive capacity.
