Overview

One of the most important building blocks of design is color -- but getting the color right is also one of design's biggest challenges. In the wake of new technologies such as improved computer monitors, digital photography, and digital printing, ironically, the complexity of color management has increased rather than diminished. This practical and comprehensive book offers a trouble-shooting guide designers can turn to for answers about all aspects and every step of color use and management. This book begins with the basics of color theory and moves methodically through the design process, covering everything from choosing color combinations and executing management techniques to designing with color on the Web and printing with optimal results. Including a useful color conversion chart, this all-inclusive handbook is the go-to resource for graphic and Web designers.
