Paper Abstract

This paper makes a case for a structured use of everyday language as a means of introducing the concept of a color order system, which is seen to be of particular value to designers. A distinction is made between teaching and learning, and some of the obstacles to learning faced by design students are described. It is suggested that a step by step approach, as embodied in a system of Color Zones, could ease the learning process. An account is given of the Color Zones system, its antecedents final development, and first trials in the classroom.
