The Value of Knowledge for Colour Design
MetadataShow full item record
Colour is not one single kind of “thing.” Here I propose a way of categorizing the different kinds of thing that colours are variously understood to be. I further propose that the means used to identify a colour determine what kind of thing it is that is being identified. My proposed categories are conventional colour, substance colour, formula colour, spectral profile colour, psychophysical colour, inherent colour, and perceived colour. I show how these different kinds of colour are the concern of people working in different disciplines and that these different disciplines all contribute knowledge that can be of value in colour design. I also show how recognition of the different kinds of colour can help designers to a clearer understanding of concepts that they use in their own discipline.

Ebeling, Wiebke; Hemmi, J. (2014)Despite lacking genetic evidence of a third cone opsin in the retina of any Australian marsupial, most species tested so far appear to be trichromatic. In the light of this, we have re-examined colour vision of the tammar ...
Polymorphisms detected in the tyrosinase and matp (slc45a2) genes did not explain coat colour dilution in a sample of Alpaca (Vicugna pacos)Cransberg, R.; Munyard, Kylie (2011)The molecular basis of the inheritance of alpaca fibre colour is poorly understood. It is likely that colour dilution is having an influence on alpaca fibre colour, with all primarily pheomelanic animals differing mainly ...
