Basics Design 05: Colour
by Gavin Ambrose
Publisher's Description
Basics Design 05: Colour is a guide to the use of colour in graphic design.

Colour is used to represent thoughts and emotions in a way that no other element of design can. This book explores in depth what colours mean; their inherent associations and cultural connotations. It then tackles how to control colour in a design in order to achieve a desired effect or fulfil a specific brief.

Starting with the basic principles of colour – how light works, colour wheels, colour combinations and harmonies – the book builds on these principles and explains how the designer can accurately and intentionally control colour.
