The Power of Color
Charles B. Smith

Color has fascinated people for centuries and continues to do so today. Come learn how color “controls” you, and how you can “control” color! Why do some people look healthier when they wear a blue shirt/ blouse? Are the colors of the rainbow always in the same order? Why do flowers/plants APPEAR the color they are? How do manufacturers get you to look at their product? What color reduces physical strength? Who decides the colors for products in all industries ---- the “Color Mafia?” Color is a multi-billion dollar business! Just remember, “Color Sells, and the Right Color Sells Better.” ®

Charles B. Smith is a long-time interior designer in Denver and a life-long color enthusiast. He is a Professional Member of the American Society of Interior Designers, he is also the past president of Color marketing Croup, the premier international association for color designers. In addition to his pursuits of botanical illustration, he also loves abstract painting and is represented in the collections of Saks Fifth Avenue, American Airlines, Federal Reserve Bank and many private patrons. He enjoys lecturing about color and its impact on people as well as its influence on the success or failure of products in the market place.
