1.3.1 The role of colour

We can use colour in the following ways.

  • To draw attention. You will often find that important buttons or areas of the screen are a different colour. For example, warning signs are often in bright colours, such as amber or red. Your eyes are drawn to these colours.

  • To show status. As the status becomes more critical, the colour might change. An example of this is traffic lights changing from amber to red.

3.7.1 Deafblindness

There are about 23,000 deafblind people in the UK. Some are totally deaf and totally blind, while others have some hearing and/or some vision (RNID, 2005, ‘Deafblind people’). Those who are totally blind may read Braille. Totally deafblind people may use the deafblind manual alphabet to communicate if they cannot hear or speak and cannot see sufficiently to use full sign language. The deafblind alphabet allows the ‘speaker’ to spell out words on the ‘listener's’ hand using specifi

Life histories and trade-offs

In this section, the emphasis switches from proximate (molecular, cellular, physiological and behavioural) types of explanation to ultimate types of explanation. In order to proceed, we need to understand two key concepts: life history and trade-off. Both of these concepts are important tools in organising thoughts about why organisms are so diverse. An organism's life history is the set of key biological events in its life, including b

1.3.3 Choosing colours with the right connotations

When you use a colour, you should think about what it is likely to mean to the people who look at it, as colours can have different connotations. Colours can even make people feel different. For example, pink has been shown to have a calming effect on emotionally disturbed people.

These connotations are partly cultural, so you may find they do not ring true for you if you are a member of a non-western culture, such as Chinese or Indian. For example, in western culture, red is often used

6.2 A sense of sumptuous hedonism

In the sphere of painting, decoration and architecture, Orientalist schemes of decoration, which were all the rage in the eighteenth century among those who sought a more colourful and sumptuous life, attained a particularly florid mode of expression in the early nineteenth century. This was a considerable development from the early Enlightenment Rococo, which had included Oriental subjects with graceful curves and conventional, theatre backdrop landscapes designed to complement elegant gold
