Color Theory & Mental Health

From the clothes on your body to the walls in your office space, each color (or lack thereof) can have a significant impact on an individual’s emotional response, mood, and overall mental and physical health. In our modern world, personal well-being has been an overarching focus for public-facing industries now more than ever. Designers continue to take it upon themselves to build intentional spaces that support the needs and wellness of their occupants.

The research behind this CEU dives deep into the importance of color theory in design, color and its tie to productivity in the workplace, and color theory in relation to mental health.
