Selecting the right colour palette for any design project, whether personal or commercial, can make all the difference in getting it right. Colours set the tone for visual communication and are essential elements in effective information navigation. Unfortunately, however, for most people including many trained designers, choosing colour is not an easy process, but with a little bit of science and a colour advice, anyone can make the right choice. Color Harmony: Layout takes 23 descriptive adjectives and shows 10 different layouts (letterhead, poster, book jacket, brochure, newsletter etc.) in three colour combinations for each adjective. The result is 1,035 colour/layout variations illustrating how colours are used to great effect in design. Opening with a discussion on how to choose colours for layouts, this book features 2 one-page case studies of various layouts whose colour is the driving factor illustrating for readers how colour can be used thoughtfully and effectively.
