My intention in starting this project was to create a space online that offered immersive color inspiration for artists and designers. This was my first post.

I’ve worked in the fashion industry since 2011. While I took one color theory class in design school, it wasn’t until I started working that I began to understand how essential it is to the design process. The more I worked with color, the more curious I became about it. And to my satisfaction — the more I looked at color, the better I became at seeing it.

Color remains mysterious to me. I think of color as a language, or as a means of experiencing the world. What can color reveal to us? How can color help us become better at seeing? And ultimately, what can color help us say? These are the questions that drive my project. I hope it inspires you.
