This book takes 23 descriptive adjectives and shows 10 different layouts (letterhead, poster, book jacket, brochure, newsletter etc.) in three color combinations for each adjective. The result is 1,035 color/layout variations illustrating how colors are used to great effect in design. Opening with a discussion on how to choose color(s) for layouts, this book features 2 one-page case studies of various layouts whose color is the driving factor illustrating for readers how color can be used thoughtfully and effectively. CD included.
