ByFERIAL has trained thousands of image and color consultants
around the world with the industry’s most highly recognized standards.

ByFERIAL Image & Color Institute is a professional global image consulting and color analysis training program for professionals around the world. Launched in 2000 by THE color authority Ferial Youakim, ByFERIAL provides technical training, certification and career development opportunities for image color analysis professionals on 4 continents.
Starting with color analysis principals pioneered by Isaac Newton in 1671 and refined by Albert Munsell in 1905, Ferial Youakim invented the proprietary 4X4 Color System (16 Seasons) ® in 2014 and once again revolutionized the color analysis industry and released the Revolution Of Color book in 2023. 
Ferial’s creation of the 16 color seasons completely flipped the traditional color wheel by introducing white, black and gray to add light, muted and shaded to the original 12 pure colors.  

"Life without color is lifeless." - Ferial Youakim
