Colour and Design

Colours in Graphic design is very important, it could make or break a design, be it a website, business cards, leaflets or the company logo colours are important, they give the viewer a feeling, emotion and most importantly it gives them a feel of what the company is like, friendly helpful etc you name it, they can be all displayed by colours!

Now i have been doing some research into this topic recently and have spent ages trying to find what helps bring colours and patterns together. going through colour charts at B&Q in the paint department, looking at pantones the lot. Speaking to a few designers on this subject has helped alot, they recommended a website to me which helps makes life easier when picking out a colour scheme.

As always Rustic Snail is here to help you guys with this subject.

Adobe has created this site which allows you to see which colours goes well with other colours, this site is http://kuler.adobe.com/

A Brilliant tool and should be bookmarked straight away along with this blog! Theres subject headings which has preset colours which work together and help you get the best out of your work.

I hope this helps you in your present and future designs!

Kind Regards

Rustic Snail
