Season 2, Episode 7: Finding Your True Colors
Color is everywhere, and it probably plays a bigger role in your life than you might realize. Not only is it a powerful storytelling tool, it can impact everything from your mood to your emotions, and how you react in different situations. We unpack the power of color in this week's episode of the Curious Minds podcast.
We speak with The Color Bible author Laura Perryman to learn how trends are born and how our brains react to color. We also hear from visual artist Niki Usagi and art director and photographer Michelle Norris to understand how color can communicate everything from the universal to highly personal, explaining why it’s time for you—yes, you—to play with a whole new world of color.
