Marcie Cooperman has “written the book” on color theory! Her newly published textbook Color: How to Use It for Pearson: Higher Education is an essential color resource for all design professionals. It has been successfully classroom-tested through years of Marcie’s Color Theory classes at Pratt Institute and Parsons School of Design.
For almost 20 years, Marcie has been a highly regarded professor at Parsons, where she teaches color theory in the Art, Media and Technology Department, as well as Fashion Marketing in their Fashion Marketing Department. She was also a professor of color theory at Pratt’s Graduate Department of Communications Design and the Industrial Design Department for many years.
Marcie has over 30 years of experience in designing with color as a main focus in several industries – fashion design, interior design, textile design and fine art. In the design and corporate worlds, Marcie is available for presentations on color theory and how to use color, whether for beginning learners or advanced professionals.
You can find Color Stories on her blog where her work promotes learning and expands the reader’s knowledge about how to use color.
She holds a BS in Fashion Design from Drexel University. Her MBA in Marketing from New York University serves her well, by highlighting the primary connection between color in design, and business. It is obvious to Marcie that color is the principle driver of business for every product and every form of promotional media, and it is inconceivable that anyone could work successfully in the design field without a strong understanding of color interactions.
