Consistently getting the right shade of color is not only a question  of conceptual design, it is also a question of practice. Every base, every room reacts to colors differently. And you’ll want to know and to test the effects.

Color has a significant influence on the way in which
we perceive our environment. Color designers are intricately involved in planning urban spaces, buildings and interiors as well as individual and industrial products.

About perception and sensitivity. The study of color design is interdisciplinary. The students are closely linked in the fields of design technology, theory and project development to all the other competence fields in the faculty. This interaction guarantees that they are well prepared to take advantage of a wide variety of options and opportunities on the job market. Good color designers need to know all about the meaning of color in human perception and processing techniques, about the effects of color on well being, the psyche and behavior. In addition to imaginativeness and artistic sensitivity, this course of studiesalso communicates basic knowledge of art and cultural history, natural sciences, handicrafts and techniques. Students also learn about the functional principles of color theory and color aesthetics and acquireexpertise for complex planning and designing processes and concept development.

Architecture, product development, color masterplanning. The color of surfaces has a significant influence on how we visually perceive the quality of our environment. The way in which we humans live in our environment, find our bearings and identify with it depends to a large extent on the coloring of that environment. Color creates aesthetic, symbolic and emotional relationships to our man-made surroundings. With their trained, creative contributions, color designers can help to shape these relationships. But they never make the decisions for the specific coloring alone; it is always an integral part of the two- and three-dimensional planning and designing processes. Consequently, color designers work in the field of architecture as well as in productdevelopment; they are active in the color master planning of urban spaces, individual buildings and their interiors. In addition, color designers work in the field of color and materialcollection as well as for individual and industrial products.

The performance delta of color design spans the
distance between color research and color planning for architecture right on up to color planning and the color marketing of products and objects.
