Colour Your City envisions a world where colour is used consciously and imaginatively to enrich the built environment and elevate wellbeing.
We see colour as a key element of urban design and placemaking, which can be utilised to help harmonise space, foster creative cities, and connect citizens, space and community.
Colour Your City believes in dynamic, playful, interactive and intriguing urban space.
Colour Your City works with city makers and shapers internationally, using the power of colour to improve cities.
We are a full-service agency based in London, with a global network of catalysts. Our team helps provide strategic advice, consultancy and artistic production at each stage of the urban design and placemaking process.
We study the psychology of colour in urban spaces, and interpret how it can be used effectively in urban design and placemaking, to create cities that are better for us.
Colour Your City works with local authorities, placemaking agencies, architects, urban planners, developers, community groups and cultural institutions to provide colour consultancy, produce inspiring spatial solutions and site-specific transformations, deliver creative placemaking and research the impact of colour in the built environment.
With global populations increasingly concentrated in cities and urban areas, there is a real need to ensure that these urban environments are as conducive to life and well-being as possible. Cities are complex networks, 'multi-authored' habitats, in need of constant renewal and care. At regular intervals we need to re-evaluate how the built environment is serving the needs of its communities and enhancing vitality.
Colour impacts everything we do. It is a very powerful tool of language, expression, communication and connection. Everyone 'gets' colour on some level, making it an accessible and potent tool.
Colour's versatility in application and approach, also makes it an ideal vehicle for civic participation. This participative action can be used to support the long-term interests of human activity in an area. Through coming together to add colour – in a myriad of ways – we can spark and create new creative possibilities for the area, foster a sense of local pride, improve communication and social cohesion.
We work with a wide strata of urban players and help organisations use colour in a visionary and strategic way.
