A Crash Course In Color Theory, Part Two: Color Harmony & Combinations
Color theory is part biology, physics, psychology and geometry. Basically, if you take the color wheel which is the spectrum arranged in a circle, you can come up with basic harmonies by using angles and symmetry. What is the formula for perfect color harmony? How do designers pick timeless colors for marketing and branding that will appeal to everyone? These questions and more get explored in this three-part crash course in color theory. Includes FREE handy reference guide!
A Crash Course In Color Theory, Part One: Color Space & Visible Light
So, color is pretty much “my thing”. I get a little feverish when discussing color theory, the psychology and the physics (and biology) behind color and our perception of it. I have made a handy awesome downloadable (printable) PDF for you to laminate (right?) and tack up on your wall. Take down the kids art and family photos to clear space for parts 2 and 3. Are you sitting down? Great. Get ready for A Crash Course In Color Theory, Part One: Color Space & Visible Light. Still not satisfied? You will have to wait for parts two and three, I can only do so much! -Jessie Lacey (Creative Director, AKA Color Nerd)
