I am a colour blind Design Director. I've only found that out last year and I'm looking for people with the same disability working with design, anyone?

Don't get me wrong, but I have a pretty solid career making highly awarded projects, so I'm not worried at all about my use of colours. What I want is to meet people with the same odd way of seeing things.

It's not as bad as it sounds. I mean, it's now something that I'm aware of but never made any difference in my career. It's not like I see the grass as being red or the sky being pink, the hues are just a tad off — as far as I read about it, would need to be born again to confirm. I had a colleague — one of the mosted gifted designers I've ever worked with — that faces the same issue, but that's everyone I know. I want to see more work by colour blind designers to try and find some sort of pattern that unites us on our unique way of looking into this world, while helping shape it.

Just ask someone to check your colors and believe them when they tell you they're wrong

Whoa. That's amazing!

Ever have any issues with clients or co-workers asking you to change the color of things? Even when you were just getting started as a designer?

Knew an art director like that, he was red/green blind so would get the colours crossed. Sometimes made him look silly when talking about work and he'd say the wrong colour, but mostly people didn't care. He just came up with concepts and made the designers do all the hard work, and otherwise there were brand guides and hex codes to follow. :P
