Join us for a free Resene webinar on 27 August

18 Aug 2020

On 27 August from 1-2pm (NZST), you’re invited to attend a free Resene webinar on ‘Demystifying colour: Making sense of the different colour systems’. Whether you’re a specifier, designer, colour expert, architect, architectural designer, facility or property manager, builder or design and colour student, all are welcome to tune in as leading colour expert Dr. Zena O’Connor delves deeper into the different systems we use to label and communicate about colour.

Demystifying colour: Making sense of the different colour systems

As a specifier, designer or architect, you may have experienced some confusion about different colour systems including RGB, CMYK, PMS and Hex codes.  

This webinar takes you from the colour systems that featured in your colour training, though to colour systems that may be familiar in the workplace, and on to colour systems that underpin proprietary products including Resene paints. Key colour systems are demystified in this webinar, which features illustrations that clearly define each colour system common in design and the built environment.
