Going beyond a simple recitation of what has historically been said about color, artist and educator Aaron Fine provides an intellectual history, critiquing prevailing Western ideas on the subject and challenging assumptions. He analyses colonialist and gendered attitudes, materialist and romanticist perspectives, spiritualist approaches to color, color in the age of reproduction, and modernist and post-modernist color strategies. Highlighted throughout are examples of the ways in which attitudes towards color have been impacted by the legacy of colonialism and are tied up with race, gender, and class.

Learn a logic-driven approach to design intuitive, accessible, and beautiful interfaces using quick and practical guidelines. Interface design is hard. Having endless design possibilities sounds great in theory, but in practice, it can be frustrating and time consuming.

Luckily, UI design doesn't have to be so hard. Over the years, I've realised that most of my visual and interaction design decisions are governed by a system of logical rules. Not artistic flair or magical intuition, just simple rules.
