Black is the darkest colour, the result of the absence of or complete absorption of light. Like white and grey it is an achromatic colour meaning literally ‘without colour’.
While white represents purity and innocence, black symbolises power and secrecy and is often associated with darkness and evil and is the traditional colour of witchcraft. “Black magic” implies magic for ‘evil purposes’. Black and white are often used to describe opposites; light and darkness, good and evil.

Huddersfield University design students investigated colour in the circular economy during a workshop with the SDC. The students examined different fabric samples in teams to find out where the fibres came from, how colour was applied, what the potential applications were for that sample, and how it fits in to a circular economy.

I have a confession… I have a professional crush on someone! I name drop him whenever I can, I refer people to his writing, I tell them where he works, I can’t stop thinking about what he says and how he says it and obviously I follow him on Twitter.
