'The Observatory' is a periodic publication exploring the semiotics of colour.

This is issue one of ‘The Observatory’ is an ongoing research project, exploring colour semiotics and visual meaning. The project was established by myself through the Visual Communication Research Group in 2009 and has received funding from the University of Derby ‘Open Studio’ and Teaching Quality Enhancement Fund. The research takes the form of a periodical publication. Each issue proposes a colour theme, which a collective group of contributors make responses to, thereby creating the content. The responses take the form of words, photographs, drawings and other visual interpretations. The project explores the potential for a ’conversation’ of responses to a defined, named colour to come together in the concrete form of the printed page and for these responses to be shared with one another and a wider audience. The publication has provided a platform for the promotion and encouragement of research activity in the Visual Communication area.
