About the Color Conference

The rules for color aren't black and white. We each experience the world uniquely and that creates an awesome opportunity for each of us to share our own perspective with others. We're really excited about being together with so many creative folks to share the color love. This event isn't just hearing about the color work of top industry professionals... but also interacting with color, networking with other colorful folks and sharing your ideas about color in workshops and panels.

NEW YORK – August 22, 2011 – Print Magazine today announced the first-ever Print Color Conference, taking place October 4-6, in New York City. Presented in partnership with Pantone and COLOURlovers, and hosted by The Art Directors Club, the event is an exploration of color by leaders in the graphic design, art, fashion, lighting, and interior design industries. The focus of Print’s Color Conference is to illuminate and elevate the discussion of color; its usefulness and impact on society, its importance as a communication tool; and its impact on the worlds of art, design, politics, branding, and everyday lives. Full program details – including speakers, interactive demos, and networking opportunities – and conference registration is available now at printcolorconference.com.

Peppered throughout the event will be interactive demonstrations in which attendees have the opportunity to experiment with color, thanks to our sponsor, 3rd Ward. Recognized as an incubator for innovation and possibility, 3rd Ward members enjoy a supportive community and top-of-the-line creative resources, including photo studios, media lab, jewelry studio, wood & metal shops, and a huge education program.

Real Life Color Palettes!

The whole COLOURlovers team will be in the house mingling with fellow lovers of color and running a "Making Color Palettes in Real Life" interactive project where you'll be able to make and share physical big palettes. (We've done this before at our previous launch events... and in NYC we'll have even more colors to choose from!)

Colorful Conversations... A Panel You Can Help Lead!

I'll be helping to moderate some panels with the world's most talented color professionals... What do you think should be part of our colorful conversation? What questions do you think I should ask them? What's the most exciting, frustrating thing about color for you? ...? I'll give you a shout-out when I ask any questions you suggest.

We look forward to coloring with you in NYC! And don't forget to use the COLOURlovers Promo Code "LOVE" for $75 OFF!

Ohhh I love this conference!
Congratulations for the team!
Sadly I am tooo far away to be there.
It sounds very interesting.
I am photographer, and sometimes when I have to think a production I come here to open Copaso and the action of make a palette help me to found the "click" idea.
Color is a very important factor to me as it is Light.

Sounds colourific. GO Team CL! And Darius, if you're nervous when you do your presentation, just remember to picture them all in their underwear. Especially that fat guy in the second row! BTW...that won't be me. I'll be there in spirit only :)

Why not ask them if they are seeing an alignment of colour taste globally as faceless multi-national corporations continue to homogenize the world, or are regional variations in colour preferences expected to be the norm for years to come?

And on a similar track... are feminine and masculine preferences in colour converging or diverging?

@huege, great questions... terrible visual! :)
I wish I could go!
@COLOURlover
Bubs. I see Molly's post saying the conference is done and went well. Lots of fun I hope.

Did you manage to ask my question?...and get the pulse of global colour trends? Will Sam in Greenwich Village be wearing the same colour clothes as Sam in Magadan?

@Huege,

So funny way it worked out... I ended up in the middle of the conversation really moderating the panel instead of just lobbing question at them. And in that chaos didn't ask your question directly.

BUT... This was in the topics of conversation. There are still influencers of trends, but in a more digitally connected world... the trends across the world are not as diverse as they might have been historically. With that being said, the trends across cultures are interpreted in subtlety different ways... ie, a local culture of dress, color preferences, etc might influence a trend to be based on another trend but in a unique way.

Thanks for following up.
@COLOURlover
So homogeneity hasn't won yet, but that's the way we're going. Thank you for the response!
