Over de auteur (2016)

FABER BIRREN (1900-1988) was an American author and consultant on color and color theory.

He attended the Art Institute of Chicago while in high school and the University of Chicago for two years where he studied color theory, and then began publishing articles on color in 1924. His first book, Color in Vision was published in 1928.

In 1934 he established his own company and worked as an industrial color consultant, advising clients on the psychological effects of color on safety, employee morale, productivity and sales. His recommendations included changing wall and interior colors to reduce visual fatigue, and using bright colors on machinery to reduce accidents. DuPont, Monsanto, and General Electric were among his clients as well as the military.
