Colour and Contrast Design Guide

Colour and Contrast Design Guide

Dulux Trade Free Colour and Contrast Digital Design Guide can help you create amazing, compliant spaces

Creating a great space is not just about how it looks. Using colour and contrast to maximum effect can also radically improve a user's experience.

We've created a Colour and Contrast Digital Design Guide to help you maximise the inclusivity and usability of a space quickly and easily. Keep reading to find out how this interactive programme can help you create amazing spaces.

Use colour and contrast more effectively

Correctly using the power of colour can be used to help navigation through a space, which is particularly useful for people with visual impairments. It's an important consideration in projects in the public spaces and is a key requirement of the Equalities Act 2010.

Use the Guide to help adhere to legislation

Our Colour and Contrast Digital Design Guide is here to help you to use colour more effectively. It can also help you to comply with the visual contrast guidelines set out in the Equality Act legislation.

When you access the programme, you can virtually paint a variety of room sets from corporate spaces to classrooms. Using pre-designed schemes or creating new ones, the programme will identify which colour choices and positioning adhere to Equality Act best practice. You can then save schemes, share them with clients or print them to create a clear on-site reference document for the application team.

The programme can be found online and is free to use. Next time you're working on a project, give the Colour and Contrast Digital Design Guide a try.
