We have long recognized that color has the power to move and affect us. Our mastery of color has allowed us to communicate and express ourselves on an emotional level. Color can affect how we feel, can convey meaning and messages without words. Color can make artwork stand out amongst others or blend into its surroundings.
This year, ViewSonic will have multiple ColorPro talks featuring color specialist from Pantone and prominent creators from around the world. The talks will be broken into two sessions. During the talks, we will explore how colors affect design and express the ideas and feelings for creation with illustrators such as Cliff Cramp, world-renowned visual artist who has created concept art pieces for Disney and Star Wars, and creatives such as Dan Rubin, creator of the Apple event series Meet The iPhone Photographer, and co-founder of The Photographic Journal, who teaches workshops on various topics around the world at events including SXSW, An Event Apart and The Photography Show. Cliff and Dan will share with us how they use color, light and shadows to create their beautiful art pieces. Join us and listen as Cliff, Dan and Pantone discuss how color can spark creativity. This will be followed by a Q&A.
