Colour can have an amazing physiological effect on us as human beings. It can get our pulse racing, it can drag us down in to a dark, bad mood, and it can do lots in-between. Understanding the effects and connotations of colour as a visual designer are a key skill. In this lesson we get pupils to think about:

  • The moods, ideas, feelings and associations of each colour.

  • How naming and strengthen the link between the colour and the emotion / reaction it evokes.
