Color is an important element today in all fields. Metamerism is perceived as matching of colors with different (nonmatching) spectral power distributions. Color is often the most salient element of design and perhaps the least understood. In order to understand more about the Mysteries of Colors, Color Matching and Metamerism, two well-versed dignitaries with more than 20 years of experience in industries were invited to shine more light on these topics. 
 
The Mysteries of the colours were broken down to faculty and students through a highly enriching presentation that started off with the informative video on how animals perceive colors compared to human beings. The revelation of the mysteries concluded with the secret of being successful, “Be Original! Be Original! Be Original! “. Furthermore the science behind the concept of colours and how humans see colours were explained. Moreover, the ideas regarding basics of colours, colour communication, colour order system, Metamerism, LAB Values and visual colour communication were discussed. Being in the 21st Century, a digital era, visual and digital assessments of colors were also introduced. The problems of mismatching colours can be now easily tackled through Metamerism.
 
All Good things must come to an end, a highly educational and equally enriching seminar came into a conclusion after the thank you speech by Mr. Purnesh.
