Color Story | Orange
Regina Acra


Prompt


For this project we were asked to pick a color of our choice and after lots of research, come up with a theme or idea we wanted to focus on, depending on the history and associations we envisioned with the color. 

I decided to choose the color orange, and after noticing the strong cultural associations I had between the color and my Hispanic heritage, I wanted to find out what my peers associated with the color as well. Because of this, I decided to make a collaborative archive of the color, where I asked my peers questions about their personal associations through a google survey, and proceeded to create a personalized spread with their answers, all held within a booklet. It was very interesting to see the wide range of associations and connections they drew between the color and their unique life experiences.
