New book: Color and Design
December 2, 2009 2 Comments
We are seeking papers for a peer-reviewed book on color and design to be published by Berg. Working title: Color and Design.
Edited by Marilyn DeLong and Barbara Martinson
Cognition, context and culture are all vital to the way we experience color. From the products we use, the clothes that we wear, and the spaces we inhabit, color provides both visual appeal and information. Our proposed book, Color and Design, addresses how we experience color through specific examples of how color is used in the design disciplines. While other books devoted to color contain basic information regarding color theory and color use, this book intends to foster a greater understanding of color through the in-depth analysis of specific cases. These examples will explore color as a cultural phenomenon, a pragmatic device for communication, and as a valuable marketing tool. Based in the disciplines of clothing design, graphic design, interior design, and product design, this book will be a valuable resource for both design practitioners and scholars.
Paper Length: We are looking for both longer papers (6,000-8,000 words) and shorter “snapshot” length papers (2000 words).
