Color is a vital element in design for triggering the emotions of one's audience. As discussed in "The Element of Color", the two main color systems in design include additive and subtractive color. Additive color is typically used in website design because it involves the projection of RGB light beams. Subtractive color is used mainly in printmaking, and it consists of light reflecting off of pigmented surfaces, typically paper. Color interaction is also very significant in triggering certain emotions in one's audience. For example, the contrast of two opposing colors can create an "electric glow" in the eyes of the audience; this is referred to as the opponent theory. Hue can add much more to the story of one's design or art, especially temperature. Temperature adds heat and the illusion of space to a piece. Warmer colors typically stand out before cooler colors, creating a somewhat 3-dimensional element to a piece. There are three different types of value: tint, tone, and shade. Each can contribute to the mood of an artwork. As a designer, it is crucial to choose a simple color scheme and keep it consistent through my designs. Whether I choose to harmonize or disharmonize between color schemes, the most important element that must remain constant is consistency. From this passage, I learned not only about the general importance of color in design, but also very technical methods to use color in my design.
