SDC uses global experts to deliver education from school leaver through to degree level, to those from technical and design backgrounds.

SDC is a membership organisation, with members in around 50 countries and regions in the UK, Hong Kong, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. SDC organises a busy programme of networking and events on a local and international level.

SDC’s focus is colour education. This is provided in many different forms to different end users. Key to the development and delivery of our education is SDC’s innovative online learning platform, which is the gateway to learning more about coloration.
