These are some basic stuff for an illustrator or designer and probably doesnt work for you but seems like I’m going to give it a try , this will make things more easier for me and I guess this will help you specially if you were absent when your teacher thought you about meanings of colors . I think I’m gonna give it a try since I dont have much time to think more of choosing shades of color and I can put my time on different areas of making illustration. .
Do you use references to choose your color effectively when you design and illustrate? I got frozen sometimes when my client start to give me pressure on my deadline and I cant get the job done right specially when I cram .
Choosing color is not an easy task when u have layers and layes of images and compicated background Im not sure if this will help me since I was trying to usually let my creativity runs wild and crazy squeeze that color shade directly from my mind , and now got this book from Page One here in Hong Kong and its called Tasteful Color combinations (naomi Kuno and FORMS Inc./Color Intelligence Institute) Its 168 pages of different combination with categories like “sweet and romantic”, “relaxed and happy”,”mysterious” “prime and charm” under this categories still have attractive labels like “an angel” “Candy”, “Honeymoon”, “Robot” etc. I’m sure this book is not new but there must be lots of this in the market in different presentation and publisher. This is not a review of the book and I’m not a seller of this book but I just want to share it with you .
