Beyond the colour wheel talk – Minotti London – 2nd May 2019

This image shows headshots of Daniel Hopwood, Jane Monnington Boddy, Kassia St Clair and Karen Haller

One of the things I love about colour is the way we relate, experience and use it, is continually evolving. 

I’ve noticed in particular over the past year or so a huge increase in the  conversations, discussions and debates at design shows, exhibitions and in the media on colour. And if  you’ve been following my blogs, articles and attended any of my talks over the years, you’ll know that I’ve been advocating how colour has a life way beyond the colour wheel.

So when Minotti London (luxury Italian lifestyle brand) asked me if I would be one of their guest speakers for their Beyond the Colour Wheel panel, it was like colourful music to my ears.

For this colour discussion, they have gathered some really fantastic speakers, one I’ve met and the other two I’m really excited to meet in person and hear what they have to say on their specialty area of colour. And I’ll be sharing my views on applied colour psychology and how we are ready to embrace and use colour beyond solely colour wheel application.

London Transport Museum – Love Your Line – Colouring in the Lines talk

This is an image of the London Transport Museum Love Your Line event

I’ve always been someone who loves travelling. As an Australian coming to London, my first experiences of the tube I remember well. I was in awe of how millions of people on a daily basis manage to navigate their way around this seemingly complex underground system. And I remember thinking how do they do this? When I spotted the huge colour coded tube map up on the station wall, I knew – find the line I needed to go on and just follow the colour.

Little did I know 15 years later I would be asked by London Transport Museum to give a talk on colour for their Friday Late Colour event ‘How we relate to colour in branding’.

I’m delighted they have asked me again for this month’s Love Your Line weekend.

explore colour at clerkenwell design week 2018

Tucked away in a little corner of east London is an area called Clerkenwell which is famous for its abundance of design showrooms, studios and architectural practices. And for three days every May, this design quarter truly comes alive for what is regarded as one of the UK’s leading independent design festivals.

I’m thrilled to be once again part of this exciting festival collaborating with this time with 100-year-old flooring brand, Altro where we’ll be launching the Wellbeing Colour Wheel.
