1.1

Skip to 0 minutes and 6 secondsHello, and welcome to the first week of the course. This week, we're going to discuss how we see colour and how the biology of the eye can confuse our perception of colour. Our subjects this week are colour, light, and the human eye; contrast and illusion; the colour wheel and colour theory; and colour combining. We will also be introducing you to the first of a series of interviews involving designers and industry specialists known for their use of colour. The KLC team will be reading and responding to your comments, so please do join in the conversation and get the most from the course.
