Carly Blackman

Office Coordinator, Shopify in Toronto Canada

Carly Blackman is a 23 year old Ryerson Fashion Graduate with Synaesthesia and Hypothyroidism. She currently works as the Office Coordinator for Shopify Toronto. Prior to her current job she spent her years traveling across the globe, drawing and painting, dreaming of space and dancing to Fleetwood Mac.

A surgery removing a tumour along with half her thyroid in 2012 was the beginning of a 2 year journey of researching, writing and designing her book called Colour Decoded. This is a book written for artists and designers explaining the science behind colour in a way a "right brained" individual can easily understand. Furthermore it discusses how colour has a massive impactive on our hormones, body and behaviours. Her exploration with colour tries to bridge the two worlds of Art and Science, which have been isolated from each other in our present day education system.
