Hi there – So you want to get to know me?

About meMy name is Jacob, I’m in my early 30s and live close to Copenhagen – the great capital of Denmark.
As you might have guessed by now, I’m the creator of this amazing (right?) website.

My fascination with color began back when I was just a little kid. I loved drawing on everything and I’m sure this was the reason for my parents hair loss.
I can still remember those beautiful blue crayons. I would keep drawing until there was nothing left and I was unable to hold them any longer, only to pick up another one and let my imagination unfold.

Colors play an even greater role in my life now. I use them every day in my job where I work with design. To me, finding the right colors and making them work together is something I really enjoy.
I use them to create all sorts of marketing material including flyers, brochures, photographs, films, websites and more.

Enough about me – spread the word!

I hope you enjoy learning about colors and their meanings as much as I enjoyed making this website. If you dedicate your life to them, they can change your life for the better. Trust me, I know this for sure.

Help me spread the knowledge and the understanding of colors by telling your friends and family about this place. If you think it’s cool, I’m sure they will too.

I’d love to hear from you if you share my passion for colors, so feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think.

    Hi Jacob,

    Nice to read your colour meaning. informative and precise. Am soon starting a professional consulting firm and thinking to use turquoise as one of my brand colour for the logo, what is your suggestion for another colour to match with turquoise?

    Reason am choosing turquoise as it is my birth month colour (Dec) and its also soothing feel .

    Jacob – I’m delighted to have just discovered your website. I was searching for information to share as I put finishing touches on my celebration for National Coloring Book Day here in the states tomorrow, Aug. 2. I’ve recently published my own coloring book, ‘Laughter Doodles’ and would love to share your website with my followers. (I see from above replies to earlier comments that you are usually fine with that so long as I mention where I got the information which I will certainly do). If you are available for a chat at some point, I’d be so grateful to talk to you about my experience creating a coloring book that combines laughter and coloring and hear more about your design work. THANK YOU for all the great information that is here!

    • Hi Sarah

      Thanks for your kind words, I’m glad you like my site.
      You are of course very welcome to share it with your followers.

      I’d love to hear more about your coloring book 🙂

  31. Greer Jonas says:

    Hi Jacob, I am currently doing a workshop on Painting the chakras. We will be delving into our own interpretations of our chakras in this interactive painting class. It will not be left brain at all, which is why I write to you today. I love love love your concise description on your page https://www.color-meanings.com/chakra-colors-the-7-chakras-and-their-meanings/

    I would like, if I have your permission, to paste this info on a flyer so that my peeps can have the detailed information about the colors and vibrations to use as a research tool for further study. As the class will be almost entirely experiencial, with a lite meditation on each chakra and music that I feel goes with each chakra. I will, of course source you and your website as the author.

    I can also link your website to my own at numerology4yoursoulcom

    Hi Jacob,
    I was happily surprised to come across your site!
    I studied natural dyes in India in 1999 and that’s when I learned about spirituality in colors, in particular the alchemy of indigo. I also used to teach ethical fashion in NY… I’m sure we have so much to talk about!
    Are you available to speak on Skype?
