TALK COLOUR with HARMONY Workshops – Early Booking Discount

Posted: 16th January 2015

If you are interested in colour and would like to gain a general understanding of how colour is specified and can be creatively incorporated into design, company and personal branding, then our workshops are just what you need. A general overview of colour theory, colour psychology, colour symbolism, colour specification and colour implementation will be part of the workshop content.

There are many areas where colour & design can be applied to commercial design & branding more effectively with a view of increasing customer foot flow, sales and revenue, customer experience and staff satisfaction. By attending our workshops you can learn and understand how to incorporate, combine and be creative with colour in your product and presentation. Perhaps your staff could benefit from this training or it could be delivered as a staff reward or incentive scheme.

If you’re a design student, then these short workshops will give you an opportunity of bringing theory together with practical implementation. They will also offer you an opportunity of focusing more closely on colour and how you can use it more creatively in your design disciplines.

In addition, we have created a new workshop to address design principles that specifically relate to the homes of people living with dementia. This particular workshop would be useful for anyone wanting to understand how to enhance an environment to improve living conditions for those with dementia or general ageing issues.  Thoughtful design in this area is design that actually works for us all.

Five individual workshops have been created to cover the above mentioned areas.  These are:


1.  COLOUR COMBO with HARMONY (Half Day)


2.  COLOUR for HOME (90 minutes)

3.  COLOUR for BUSINESS (90 minutes)

4.  COLOUR for YOU (90 minutes)



COLOUR COMBO with HARMONY combines all areas of the home, business and the individual.

COLOUR TASTERS with HARMONY break the three areas down into ‘bite’ sized sessions.

SPECIALITY AREAS shows how design & colour can bring effective solutions to a specific environment.

*** The workshop content can be tailored made to meet your specific requirements.
