Understanding color can be a daunting task with many dead ends. Have you ever taken a color theory class only to be left feeling like it didn’t teach you anything to do with applying color in the real world?

Maybe you have an awesome natural instinct for putting together cohesive palettes or colorizing fabulous patterns perfectly, but why are you so good at it? Validating the why, where and when of color will change your entire outlook on color and what it can do to your personal or professional life.

Color opportunities exist in many industries. Companies need color design expertise to guide them through the many choices they have to make as a successful business. Choices they must make involving color range from advertising, product design, branding and many more. You need credible, verifiable information to back up your decisions as a consultant or designer and you need more than a simple love for color to get you there.

Oh I am going to be so disappointed if I was too late in getting back with my answers on round two selection. Well guess it's time to sinc my iphone with colourlovers announcements ...right? until tomorrow's almost 3 am in Dallas and the color is "after midnight". love note. Sigh. Sob. I am crushed but thankful for the opportunity to have tried. FYI, in case some crazy thing happens and someone can't make it to the seminar, I wanted you to know I can pay for and attend the seminar. Congrats to the winners whoever you may be!

ah! sorry everyone I was having trouble with the final decision so contacted Leatrice for her opinion as well....I also and wanted to be sure I heard back from everyone in the final selection. Some people were trying to confirm they COULD in fact make it, pay for the 2nd price (1/2 scholarship), etc. I wanted to give everyone in the selection round a shot.

I Sincerely apologize. I will have the announcement up this morning. Just give me a second to get my list straight.

I love how dedicated everyone is to this prize and I sure hope we get another spot at her next class to give away. :) I'll do my best to get everyone another chance who did not make it this time around.
