In this lesson we'll be focusing on color and design theory. Color theory can be very important because, as humans, we're drawn to certain color combinations and repulsed by others. If you look through images of Hollywood promotional posters, you'll likely notice that the orange and teal color combination shows up frequently. This is an example of color theory in practise. Throughout this lesson we'll be using paletton.com to investigate the different types of color harmonies, as well as their complimentary versions:

  • Monochromatic
  • Adjacent
  • Triad
  • Tetrad
