Design Fundamentals: Notes on Color Theory: Learn by Video.pdf
You don't have to enroll in an expensive college course to learn how to design effectively with color-now you can just watch the video! Through a combination of stop motion animations and live presentations, Rose Gonnella, executive director of Kean University's Robert Busch School of Design, and illustrator Max Friedman explain the core principles of color theory in a way that you will both remember and enjoy. The three-hour course is broken down into short, easily watchable videos that show you how and why the eye reacts to light to perceive different shades and hues; how to use a color wheel; when to use RGB instead of CMYK; the difference between color systems such as Kelvin, CRI, and Pantone; how to use color to create effective compositions; how to put together pleasing palettes for a variety of projects; and more. Fun and fast-paced, this imaginative video brings to life the basics and history of color science, the practical awareness of color qualities and characteristics, and the use of color in art and design for composition and visual expression. It's the one lecture on color theory that students won't want to skip.
