For example, students in the graphic design course asked me to give them lessons in color, insisting they knew nothing about it. This really surprised me. My immediate answer was, â€œBut you should teach me! Youâ€™re surrounded by color and use it in such powerful ways in every aspect of daily life. I admire you for it!â€ Their response was to laugh and say, â€œBut Teacher! Thatâ€™s not design! We need to use design colors.â€ From talking to my students and people in the cultural sector, I got the impression that design was this distant, quite artificial, field they had to adapt to.
