What is a Colour Designer?
It’s quite simple, but it’s not easy. In short, a colour designer or colour consultant specialises in the effects of colour and creates colour solutions for a client’s goals. Whether your client is wanting a colour solution for their home or office space, interior or exterior, logos or corporate branding – a colour designer will have the in-depth understanding to work in all fields.

Colour Design graduate
“Before coming to iscd, I’d been a florist for 25 years and was stuck in a bit of a career and life rut. I was looking for something else and went to the open days of a couple of colleges. iscd just stood out a mile; I felt really comfortable and the teachers resonated with me. The atmosphere of the school really nailed it for me.
I undertook the Certificate IV in Design then went on to do the Diploma in Colour Design. I started getting work halfway through the certificate course – I was assisting on photoshoots for magazines and absolutely loved it. The course really opened my eyes to all the different creative avenues you can choose to go down.
I run my own company, Beautiful Interiors, and work as a colour consultant and prop stylist for television.
The most important part of my experience was the teachers, they were amazing. Really down-to-earth and encouraging. They were realistic about the future, too.
I used to be petrified of change, of taking a chance. The thing I got most out of iscd beside confidence was the belief that my creativity can be used in so many different areas.”
