Creative Way To Learn Color Theory


If your kids or siblings are struggling to learn color theory, there is a good news for you! Japanese stationery brand introduced a innovative set of “Nameless Paints” whose colors are identified by their color not name. They have labelled the paint tubes visually and  indicated the quantity of different colors used in creating a specific color by making the size of colored circles big and small.


The 2012 Kokuyo Design Award Winners, Yusuke Imai and Ayami Moteki, designed it to help children to master the basic concepts of color theory and how easily they can create a new color by mixing primary colors. They said:

“By not assigning names to the colors we want to expand the definition of what a color can be, and the various shades they can create by mixing them.”

These paints will be available on sale to Japanese in October. People living in other countries have to wait a little bit.
