Color at Work: Storytelling in Branding, Packaging and Commercial ImagerySeptember 22, 2022
5:30 PM - 6:30 PM
At the Museum of International Folk Art, Vernick Auditorium
The Museum of International Folk Art Design Council presents this 45-minute run through the rainbow which gives us a peek into the nine color families discussed in Keith Recker’s new book Deep Color: The Shades That Shape Our Souls and gives examples of how they are used in design, media and communications. From historical figures Charles V of Spain and Madame de Pompadour to pussy hats and gilet jaunes, color works on us in mysterious ways, and diving into the spectrum gives us insight into how.
Book signing following. This is the national debut of Deep Color. This event is free, but registration is required.
The Museum of International Folk Art Design Council is a creative community of thinkers, makers, and innovators dedicated to elevating and advocating for the aesthetic, social, and global connections between traditional folk art and modern design.
