Update: Apr 2nd, 2010

Functional Color is the blog of Maureen Stone, of StoneSoup Consulting. I’ve done a lot of teaching and presentations, and have even written a book, A Field Guide to Digital Color.  With this blog, I’m hoping to create an on-going forum for topics ranging from perception to aesthetics, with emphasis on those that either create or explain functional color.

I am new to blogging, so I’m still experimenting with my style, both visual and editorially. The template for this blog is called blocks2. The colors  mostly match my principals and aesthetics, though I’m not entirely fond of the green and red-orange. But, they are colorblind safe because the green is brighter and more yellow than the red-orange. And, since the color encoding is redundant, all that is really needed is legibility.
