The seminar is over – Colour Seminars UK

Do you want to expand your understanding about colour? Then don’t hesitate to participate in our next Colour Seminar.

You can expect a day filled with colour theory, measurement and communication, illustrated by practical examples and applications in our software.

What you will learn:

In this colour seminar you will learn about colour theory and best practices of colour management. Depending on your prior knowledge, you can opt for the regular colour seminar or for the advanced version.

Still not sure if this seminar is for you? Here’s what some of the participants have been saying about our previous seminars.

“What I found most useful? The clear division into light source, object, observer and their properties. The operation of the spectrophotometer. The overview of the existing options for color measurement.”

“I have done a similar course before, so part of it was already known to me. The most added value for me was the explanation of the CMC and the difference with CIELab. I have had this in previous courses but back then with a very unclear explanation where I really didn’t understand it.”

“What I found most useful was the explanation of, especially, the color spectrum. They were nice course instructors who were very knowledgeable.”
