I’m a designer, so I was thinking about this the other day. If I design an ad, for example, that has a word in red to make it stand out, does it look different to you than the other words? Or because you see words/letters in colors already, is there no effect?
Similarly, any of you synesthetes out there designers yourselves? Does it present a challenge to you when you’re trying to select colors and create a design?
I see shapes and colors when I’m listening to music, and sometimes it can be distracting when I’m trying to work. I have to choose the right music or it just doesn’t work, or sometimes I just have to turn it off all together. So I can just imagine how tricky it would be if the stuff I was working on was getting all wonky with the colors because of the words that were in the layout.
