A World of Color

4 Nov

1. Spot color

This magazine spread uses bright, almost neon green for the header and the side bar, making a great, bold eye-catching graphic display.

2. Duotones

This magazine spread uses black, white, and red to add a layer of contrast to an ordinarily boring black and white image.

3. Analogous Colors

This spread quite literally uses analogous colors with the use of purple and blue brush strokes on the opposing pages.

4. Complementary colors

This advertisement uses the complementary colors green and purple all throughout the design. it is on both pairs of shoes and even on the model’s shirt. The use of purple and green certainly draws in the eye to the ad.

5. Triadic harmonies

The cover the this New York Magazine uses a combination of purples, blues, pinks, and orange and green in a triadic harmony. It pops full of color and really makes you want to read it. It also hints at how truly diverse New York is (with all of the different colors).
