When I was looking for an apprentice to learn my business, I developed a rather extensive application process. After interviewing the finalists, I felt I needed some further understanding of their native ability to formulate ideas in color and their grasp of the nuances of color. To that end, I created this simple color quiz. The results were delightful, and I think you will appreciate the creativity shown.

Here are the instructions:

On a card no larger than 5″ x 5″ — illustrate five of the following. Do not use literal, recognizable objects like a coffee pot, a cat, etc. I would prefer that you represent the ideas figuratively using color contrasts, proportions, relationships, and shapes. They can be as simple or complex as you like. Capture the essence of the concept.
