Sunday mornings are great for drinking coffee or tea in your pyjamas while listening to ICA-Belgium’s online Colour Talks!


On Sunday October 17th 2021 at 10h until 11h CEST our guest is the Australian colour technologist Nick Harkness. He will give us an exclusive insight into the impressive online training seminar Colour Made Simple – For Visual and Instrumental Colour Measurement. With dozens of chapters, exercises and tests the tool is designed to teach the fundamentals of visual colour assessment and instrumental colour measurement for industry, design and research, fulfilling the rewarding task to make science understandable for everyone.

Color Made Simple is a joint project of Nick Harkness along with Stephen Westland, Professor of Colour Science and Technology and Dr. Vien Cheung School of Design, University of Leeds. They decided to pool resources and offer it as an online seminar. The team from the University of Leeds have produced the online colour exercises which are an integral component of the seminar and are designed to colourfully describe the fundamentals of colour language.

In this A Meeting of Minds presentation Nick will focus on colour mixing from two directions, one a combination of colour harmony, mixing and interaction and the second on the application of colour measurement in relation to pigment quality and colour matching. All very colourful!
