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.
Colour Your City is a London-based consultancy with a global network of visionaries, catalysts and innovators.
Colour Your City works with local authorities, developers, placemaking agencies, architects, 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 forward-thinking organisations to use colour in a visionary and transformational way.
We transform space through site-specific collaborations with acclaimed artists. We offer end-to-end delivery from initial spatial assessment, to conceptual development, artist curation, commissioning, multidisciplinary team building, public engagement and impact studies.
We use colour to explore culture, place, history and identity. Our workshops are fun, playful and engaging. They can include multimedia community storytelling and using AR technology to reimagine space.
We explore colour as a tool of urban transformation. Physical, sensorial and aesthetic change within the cityscape, and also how the use of colour can impact social change, creativity and engagement.
