    Color & Meaning


    A cacophony of color.

    Saturation, hue, contrast, tone, tint, shade- these are just a handful of the words we use to describe one of the most incredible perceptions we possess. We are wired to process color.

    In our quest to tackle complexity, we at Y Worlds believe that it is vital to incorporate color into our language of semiotics. We cannot ignore that which has such a fundamental role in our thinking, our understanding and our perception. As part of our language, Visual Y, we have constructed a mechanism that uses color to indicate elements of validity and positivity. In addition, we will use movement, flow, texture and pattern to embed a richer meaning to the information.

    Recognizing the non-universality of the meanings of any color, we have endeavored to establish a small set of spectra that can be easily remembered and applied.



    Color is such a fundamental element of the human condition, and it’s a shame that it has thus far been so underutilized in language and thought. Color and pattern have the potential to fundamentally change how we organize and comprehend complex knowledge.
