10-43: A Study of Color and Trust is an examination of American police uniforms through a color theory perspective.
Police uniforms have always been a marker of power and authority, but uniform design and color can influence how police and civilians interact with and perceive each other.
The first half of this book is an examination of uniform color and style throughout history in comparison with crime rates and policy changes.
Each spread highlights a dramatic change in police uniform design and the resulting effects on the community.
The second half of the book is comprised of survey data gathered from people aged 18-65 about their perception of colors without contextual bias.
The information gathered was then synthesized into colorized police uniforms, presenting a crowd-sourced, color theory perspective on future police uniform color and design.
