Colour Conference | Melbourne

Colour Conference | Melbourne

The Colour Society of Australia held their annual conference in Melbourne, 7-9 September 2018.

I presented a paper: Colour/contrast Interventions to Improve Environmental Visual Literacy. The paper discussed the use of evidence-based colour strategies that incorporated supergraphics. The hypothesis is that colour/contrast interventions may have positive impacts on pedestrian safety and traffic calming.

The colour conference included a packed schedule. Presenters included David Coles, author of Chromotopia and Sonia van de Haar of Lymesmith @lymesmithy. In addition, Assoc Prof Daryl Guest and Dr John Parkes, Dr Paul Green-Armytage and Dr Barry Maund presented papers. Plus, architect Greg Burgess, Lisa Howard of TCL Landscape Architects and Sabine Amoore Pinon also presented.

At the Colour Conference in Melbourne, my presentation included a nominal group consensus survey of colour/contrast supergraphic interventions. A 2nd iteration of this survey will be conducted at the AIC-2018 conference in Lisbon, 25-29 September 2018. Information about the AIC-2018 conference is available here.
