An attempt was made to build a bridge between the art and science of color, utilizing computer graphics as a medium. This interactive tutorial presents both technical and non-technical information in virtually complete graphic form, allowing the undergraduate college student to readily understand and apply its content. The program concentrates on relevant topics within each of the following aspects of color science: Color Vision, Light and Objects, Color Perception, Aesthetics and Design, Color Order, and Computer Color Models. Upon preliminary completion, user-testing was conducted in order to ensure that the program is intuitive, intriguing, and valuable to a wide range of users. COLOR LOGIC represents effective integration of color science, graphic design, user-interface design, and computer graphics design. Several practical applications for the program are discussed.
