Seeing Color Through Infographics and Data Visualizations

Seeing Color Through Infographics and Data Visualizations | Colorful Worlds | Scoop.it

Color is a crucial part of our visual experience.

It indicates many things in our lives, from the ripeness of a banana, to how someone is feeling, to which subway line we should be on.


Not everyone sees colors the same way, and colors have drastically different meanings in different cultures, but one thing we all have in common: color is important. These visualizations all show us different things about colors.


Visit the original article for over a dozen infographics and links related to color psychology, trends and various uses and applications.

Isabel de Yzaguirre's curator insight, April 20, 2013 5:03 AM

It seems that economical recession leads companies to produce smaller items and furniture and to reinterpret their great design hits in a more adapted to this day version. 

As for colors, I've seen many and varied pastels and some stronger combos, like primary red and blue. It's interesting to see how economic and social situation influences the market's trends. I think the pastels are used to soothe the spirit and make it happier - we need some help these days. And the stronger palettes, maybe are meant to produce and immediate enlivening of pur mood. As said above, no wonders on that.A very recommendable slideshow to be watched in this article.

Isabel de Yzaguirre's comment, April 20, 2013 5:19 AM
I said pastels and maybe I had to add soft muted colors.
