Student Perspective: IIDA Color Trend Course
March 1, 2012 § Leave a comment
Wednesday evening, the IIDA Carolina Chapter hosted a continuing education course on UNCG’s campus. It was a great opportunity as a student IIDA member to get a taste of what a continued education course would entail and to network with design professionals from the surrounding area. Ann Hurley was the speaker and she gave a presentation on the upcoming color trends. Her presentation was entitled Silent Riot. It was based on the influence of graffiti, and how it remains silent in sound but shouts loudly and openly about the day’s social and political happenings. The upcoming trend is projected to be vibrant colors that make a statement, incorporating “objects of curiosity.”
Below are a few photos I have taken of graffiti combined with color palettes as an example of what Ann Hurley was speaking about.
