Colorography is a colored mapping language system that functions by encoding each letter with different colors and connecting the same colored letters by using lines. Instead of reading articles by means of words and phrases, viewers will decode this system through the color data. One of the aims of this project is teaching people of all ages to easily access color theory, which is why Colorography can be used across various media. The color square blocks are designed for kids to learn letters and basic color theory and the website is designed for adults who have experience using web multimedia to test their color memory.
