That was pretty interesting. Thanks for posting this up. Something like color seems so simple, but when you hear a color designer talk about all the thought and work that goes into creating colors for a Lexus vehicle it gives you a new appreciation of the colors that you see on all Lexus vehicles. I especially liked her comments about how the color and the material are never perceived separately so you need to find a marriage between the two.
I didn't even think that "color designer" was a job. I am guessing that she works for more than just Lexus. She must be at an agency. I just can't see there being enough work for Lexus to hire a color designer all to themselves.
