Les Creative Mornings ont débuté en 2008 à New York grâce à la designeuse Swiss_Miss. Fort de leur succès, ces petits déjeuners se sont répandus dans le monde entier, plus précisément dans 88 villes.

Le mois dernier, la thématique était « Color » : Comment la couleur influence notre quotidien, notre environnement de travail, nos humeurs ou émotions. En mai dernier, son livre “L’étonnant pouvoir des couleurs” vit le jour au grand public. Ci-dessous quelques slides de sa conférence et une interview vidéo :

kuler Color Psychology by David Johnson Like death and taxes, there is no escaping color. It is ubiquitous. Yet what does it all mean? Why are people more relaxed in green rooms? Why do weightlifters do their best in blue gyms? Colors often have different meanings in various cultures. Black Black is the color of authority and power. White Brides wear white to symbolize innocence and purity. Red The most emotionally intense color, red stimulates a faster heartbeat and breathing. The most romantic color, pink, is more tranquilizing. Blue The color of the sky and the ocean, blue is one of the most popular colors. Green Currently the most popular decorating color, green symbolizes nature. Yellow Cheerful sunny yellow is an attention getter. Purple The color of royalty, purple connotes luxury, wealth, and sophistication. Brown Solid, reliable brown is the color of earth and is abundant in nature. Colors of the Flag In the U.S. flag, white stands for purity and innocence. Food for Thought

Cognition Cognition is a faculty for the processing of information, applying knowledge, and changing preferences. Cognition, or cognitive processes, can be natural or artificial, conscious or unconscious.[4] These processes are analyzed from different perspectives within different contexts, notably in the fields of linguistics, anesthesia, neuroscience, psychiatry, psychology, philosophy, anthropology, systemics, and computer science.[5][page needed] Within psychology or philosophy, the concept of cognition is closely related to abstract concepts such as mind, intelligence. It encompasses the mental functions, mental processes (thoughts), and states of intelligent entities (humans, collaborative groups, human organizations, highly autonomous machines, and artificial intelligences).[3] Etymology[edit] Origins[edit] Wilhelm Wundt (1832-1920) heavily emphasized the notion of what he called introspection; examining the inner feelings of an individual.

Combining Colors - Analog, Complementary, Triad - Colors on the Web Color combination is really the most important part of color theory and designing with colors, and also the hardest-- It always comes down to your personal judgement and how you look at colors. There are, however, some guidelines that can be used to make a color combination that is interesting and pleasing to the eye. How many colors? It is hard to give an exact answer to this question, but in general one can say that the risk of using too many colors is greater than the risk of using too few. Too many colors will make the page feel too busy and it usually makes it harder for the viewer to find the information he or she wants. A page with too few colors, on the other hand, risks being seen as a bit boring, but this need not always be the case. One commonly used rule in these matters is to use three colors. Primary color: This is the main color of the page. Color Wheel By now you should recognize the color wheel. Triad Colors Triad colors are three hues equidistant on the color wheel.
