When: Thursday November 9th, 1.30pm – 5pm
Where: Hilton Portland & Executive Tower, Portland OR
Extend and strengthen your color knowledge in this dynamic and interactive session – exclusive to the International Summit. This session will be taught by two veteran CMG members and international color experts, Roz Kavander of Morgan Design and Alicia Keshishian of Carpets of Imagination/Chromalicious. We invited Roz and Alicia to share their passion for color and for this session. Here’s what they want you to know:
Alicia: “Color is one of the most powerful tools in any designer’s tool kit. A deeper understanding of color can give you more control in your creative life and consulting career. The more you know, the more effective you can be as you help your clients navigate through the mysteries of color and how it will ease their daily life. As a design consultant, knowing the fundamentals of color will enliven your presentations and will deepen your ability to take your clients to the next level with everything from textiles to paint selection to flower arranging.
People respond to color before anything else. It’s truly visceral. Most clients are unable to navigate any new territory, be it pattern or style, if the colors don’t resonate for them. And while it is important to understand where trends originate and how they evolve, color is very personal and transcends current fashion trends or peer pressure. A clear understanding of color psychology will give you confidence with your clients, enriching your relationship with them and allowing you to act as their guide.”

Roz: “It is hard to get good information on colour. Often the information is specialized for certain industries or it is too technical for casual use. Color Power is about interacting with colour. Colour is exciting, colour is mysterious and sometimes hard to explain. We want to give you the language of colour and we want you to understand the psychology behind colour. We plan to touch on the science of colour and let you use the tools that are available from NCS, X-Rite Pantone and RAL. We want to give you confidence to speak about colour and to be able to make presentations and to know what the right colours are. We want you to leave the session armed with reliable information that keeps you at the forefront of color. Our biggest goal is to make this class fun and active – you’ll engage in a variety of hands-on color while playing with color, color tools, and materials. This session is designed to arm you with solutions that fit your role in the industry which in turn will make your job more successful and rewarding!”
