Hi, my name is Jacob. I’m in my late 30s and I live close to Copenhagen, the great capital of Denmark. As you may have guessed, I’m the creator of this amazing website (est. 2013).

My fascination with color began back when I was just a little kid. I loved drawing on everything and naturally my parents were thrilled with me decorating the floors, walls and furniture with my artwork.

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 at my job where I work with design, marketing and branding.

To me, finding the right colors and making them work together is something I really enjoy. I’m very fortunate because I get to use colors on a daily basis to create all sorts of graphic material, such as flyers, brochures, photographs, films, websites and logos.

If you want to hire me, send me an email and I’ll help bring some color to your project.

I hope you enjoy learning about colors and their meanings as much as I enjoy teaching you.

The great thing about color is that if you dedicate yourself to them, they have the power to change your life for the better.

Color doesn’t exist without light, so in order to see color, we need to see the light.
