To celebrate the International colour day, students of Graphic and Interactive Communications at the University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Natural Sciences and Engineering were challenged to use a colour palette of four colour swatches to illustrate a proverb. Those colour palettes in the gallery below present their interpretation of proverbs and reflect the emotions that arose from the proverb message.
Simultaneously, a short survey was done in which the observers were asked to discover which proverb is presented by a specific colour palette. On average, more than 64 % of observers recognized the proverb based on the four selected colours, confirming that a specific colour or colour combination carries a certain symbolic meaning and can convey a strong message.
