How to think in colors or Color Theory for Designers
Colors are an inseparable part for any Textile enthusiast. It is therefore, important, to understand the colors as a physical and psychological phenomena. Equally important is to understand the effect of various color patterns on an overall experience.
This site presents a three-part series on color theory. Here the meanings behind the different color families are discussed , and some examples of how these colors are used (with a bit of analysis for each) are given.
In Part 2 there is a talk about how hue, chroma, value, saturation, tones, tints and shades affect the way we perceive colors.
Third part discusses color pattern for designers.
The treatment of the subject is done keeping a web-designer into mind. The implications are true equally for any textile situation.
