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 uniforms and is shown in minimal color blocking.
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 which was then used to colorize police uniforms, presenting an alternative uniform based on ideals championed by American police.
