colour talk – colour in branding & advertising

I’m delighted to be asked to speak at the Colour Collective UK’s October event Colour in Branding & Advertising – Palette to poster.

The Colour Collective UK is made up of a fabulous group of colour lovers and devotees based in the north of England. They are great at seeking out and bringing together an eclectic mix of design and industry people from different backgrounds that always makes for a really interesting series of thought provoking talks.

They have invited three speakers for their October event. They are local fashion icons Michael Owen who will be talking about how he harnessed the power of a single colour to tell his brand story and Mandy Barker discussing why she had to navigate the political aspects of pink for a recent client project. I’m really looking forward to hearing their experiences. And I’ll be sharing how my clients use colour to influence consumer decisions, and why.

Introducing… the Wellbeing Colour Wheel Tool and Framework

Last week I spent three days at Clerkenwell Design Week. Now into its 9th year, it’s definitely one of the highlights on the global design calendar.

It’s also one of my favourites as it has a real festival feel to it and for me this year was even more exciting because I officially launched my new Wellbeing Colour Wheel in collaboration with the prestigious 100-year-old flooring brand, Altro, where I selected colours from their current product range based around the concept of Creating mindful interiors for wellbeing spaces – going beyond the grey.

How exciting, London Design Week is almost upon us. When London immerses itself in all things design, attracting creative minds from around the world.

I’ve been busy working behind the scenes on the 100% Design colour talks programme. I can’t believe it was back in March, by a chance meeting at another colour event (Sean Rogg’s founder of The Waldorf Project with his sensory and intriguing Chapter Two: ‘Colour’) when I met the lovely Claire Barrett from Caro Communications.

The colour wheel is just the tip of the iceberg

The colour wheel is just the tip of the iceberg

Colour is one of those amazing phenomenons that’s fascinated man for centuries. So much so there’s specialist colour scientists, academics and researchers around the world coming up with amazing new colour theories and findings all the time.

Interestingly, the new ways of working with colour coming out of the ongoing research aren’t widely known within the design industries. It’s as if we’re stuck in a colour wheel rut and haven’t moved on. But this is definitely changing.

Speaking at Constant Contact Marketing Reboot 2014.

If you run your own business and if you’re like me, it can sometimes feel like learning the skill of marketing is going to take a lifetime to master. If you want a day to work ON your business (rather than IN it) and help reboot your marketing, this is a brilliant one-day conference, featuring a series of sessions from some of Constant Contacts favourite marketing experts sharing their knowledge with you.

I was honoured to be asked by Constant Contact if I would be their ‘real life business case study’ to share how I use engagement marketing to promote my business on an ongoing basis.
