Quote: "Color for the Real World is an absolutely amazing colour resource, very user friendly and saturated with informative colour content, creating a seamless flow of transferring knowledge from instructor to student. Its practical applications of colour projects and exercises would be most useful in keeping the student organized and focused on colour choices and application. I was particularly impressed by the intensity of Chapter 2, Color Nomenclature."

Reviewer: June Lawrason, Professor, Ontario College of Art and Design.

Quote: “That was an awesome book and CD Rom you are working on.  It is easy to negotiate, understand, work with and thorough.  And, it's visually rich; has a lot to offer.  I would not hesitate to recommend it in color courses or within the context of other design education-well ahead of other books in the big bibliography.  The global approach and symbolic section were really exciting; there is such a psychological aspect. You put color in context. Great job! Thank you for sharing that with me. I was honored”.

Reviewer: Patricia Rodemann, MA, CMG Chairholder

Quote: “This is a marvelous tool that anyone can relate to whether academic, business or personal. There are all kinds of people who want to know about color.”
