Color plays a vital role in visual experiences. Professionals in design, fashion, architecture, and art are constantly exploring to find good solutions regarding color. In a globalizing world, color requires less time to "read" than any other means of communication.

Recent experiments by artists and designers reveal a never-ending fascination with and attraction to color. Research aimed at the urban environment shows how color identifies cultures and can be used to attract attention. Color provides more than a visual experience, however. Scientific studies have proved that other senses, such as touch and taste, are stimulated as well. Projects devoted to well-being and healing provide solid evidence of an increasing interest in color.

Colour Hunting: How Colour Influences What We Buy, Make and Feel presents projects---all richly illustrated with photographs and drawings---that pioneer techniques and experiments with fabrication processes on a small scale, with a do-it-yourself attitude as well as large-scale research projects on paints and coatings, carried out by international companies.

The book is divided into three chapters: commerce (sell, buy), aesthetics (make), and well-being (feel). Illustrated pages are followed by in-depth case studies and interviews regarding the use of color for these three purposes. Experts explain why color matters in branding and how knowledge of color and its effects determines the selection of colors that designers apply to their work and the materials involved. Colour Hunting also offers lucid insights into the work of international "trend teams."

Interviews with well-known professionals including Issey Miyake, Leatrice Eiseman of the Pantone Color Institute, and Matthias Sauerbruch of Sauerbruch Hutton Architects highlight the pages of this book.

Jeanne Tan has written for many international magazines, including Wallpaper*, i-D, and Metropolis.

'I just seen your beautiful book. It is really quite wonderful and I hope that you have much success with it, there is no question that you will!' Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute and Director of Eiseman Center for Color Information and Training (USA)

'It's a fascinating read, made especialiy so by the facts about colours that are dotted throughout the book.' Artichoke magazine

I received my copy of Colour Hunting and I am very excited! It is a fantastic book as it covers such a broad range of colour related topics from branding to fashion, architecture, colour forecasting to colour psychology and therapy. I like how the colour facts are placed in between the other chapters which makes the book really interesting. This is definitely a good read for students and people working in any colour related industry. Thanks for the tip!’ Bettina Deda, Colour Consultant (Australia)
