5 Reasons Why Colour Schemes Fail

Have you wanted to explore the possibilities of what working with colour can achieve but not sure where to start?

Do you pull together colour palettes and colour schemes and getting it right feels a bit hit and miss at times? Especially when you give your clients what they asked for and their reply is something like 'I don’t like it' or 'It's just not right', or you intuitively sense there's something not quite right yourself but you can't quite put your finger on it?

Are you passionate about colour but find it all a bit daunting, overwhelming and like at times you're trying to navigate a minefield of myths and misconceptions?

Well I've designed the perfect mini course for you:

5 Reasons Why Colour Schemes Fail and what you need to know to create successful colour schemes every time.

This mini course is a great way to dip your colourful toes into the fascinating world of colour and begin to expand your understanding of just how objective colour can really be (yes, I did mean to say objective, not subjective!).

Colour is coming to the forefront in the design world now because more and more designers are realising colour is actually at the very core of amazing design - not to mention happy clients and customers.

I really enjoyed the mini course. I couldn’t wait to get the next lesson each day. I learned a great deal in the 5 days and it opened my eyes to areas of colour I didn’t realise.

– Trudi Taylor, Colour Consultant, Australia

What You'll Learn

  • How to manage and overcome the 'colour elephant' in the room

  • Why focusing on creating a 'mood' alone is a risky strategy if you want consistently successful colour schemes

  • Why context can change everything and what you need to know so that you unknowingly create undesired behaviours

  • How colour is the secret weapon you never knew you had to create consistent, repeatable results every time

  • The reason behind why colour schemes can feel 'off' and what you can do about it

  • And lots more…

After finishing Karen's mini-course I knew two things: Karen's knowledge is based on science and research, which gives me the missing piece of the jigsaw and the authenticity I feel I need to talk to clients. Secondly Karen herself is authentic. I would recommend a conversation with Karen to find out for yourself.

- Nick Horton, Founder Vibe2Tribe

What’s included...

  • 5 (five) tutorial videos

  • 5 (five) PDF Handouts which doubles as a quick reference tool too

  • Actionable tips for you to apply in your work and everyday life to help you embed the learning

  • A dedicated Facebook group where you can ask all your course related questions, share your colour inspiration and discuss anything about the fascinating world of colour.

How it works

Over the course of 5 (five) days you'll receive via email containing an easily digestible tutorial video along with a PDF Handout.

As it's all online, you can watch and re-watch the videos whenever it suits you, so you can fit it in around your lifestyle, your work and family life. You'll have access to the videos for the lifetime of the course.

This course is for you if you:

  • are a designer and work in the design industry such as: interiors, textiles, product design, branding, graphic design, architecture, retail or healthcare

  • have always be curious what's next after traditional colour wheel theory

  • want to communicate better with your clients about colour

  • up till now haven't had the time or the finance to invest in a full course

Professional colleagues and friends all were delighted with the unique insight into how colour affects them. From CEO, Fabric director, Colourists and Healthcare professionals, everyone enjoyed the mini course saying ‘it lifted their spirits and gave them insight to reasons for their own feelings about colour’ and ‘how it will help them and from now on to think differently about colour’.

A Little About Me

Hi, I’m Karen Haller, FRSA, leading international authority in the field of Behavioural Colour & Design Psychology. My area of speciality is in Behavioural & Human Centred Design and how our relationship with colour, design and nature affects and influences us, as well as how businesses and designers can use it to influence positive behaviour and wellbeing. I’m also the author of bestseller The Little Book of Colour, Sunday Times Top 10 Design book.

I consult, collaborate and create with companies and individuals whose aim is to use colour and design for positive good and positive change, who aren’t afraid to challenge the norm, to investigate social problems and seek new ways to positively improve human experience in balance with nature.

I love nothing more than working with forward thinking brands and organisations who genuinely care about their people because that's what behavioural design is all about. Putting humans at the centre of design that is good for the individual, good for others and good for the planet.

My philosophy, my approach when it comes to using colour and design is to use it consciously to really create considered designs that improves the well-being of everybody involved.

Come join me on this life changing experience for you and your clients.
