Color for Design: More Than Just a Pretty Palette Fall 2023

Picking colors is so much fun!

Until you have more than one. Or your brand color looks awful on screen. Or the thing you printed doesn’t look like you expected.

Anyone who has ever had to negotiate with a partner when painting a room knows this feeling. People don’t even use the same names for colors – is that green or teal or aqua?

But color is a key part of creating visual impact. Using it well can drive the action you need, improve memorability, and build connection with your brand.

Plus, knowing how, when, and where to use color makes designing marketing materials go so much faster.
