Work with Adobe Colour CC (Kuler)!

 

Make use of Kuler and develop four different colour schemes. You must hand in screen shots of your schemes as done with Kuler:

Ku? LER????

What is Adobe Kuler? What is a ‘kuler’ anyways? (It’s actually Creole for Colour if I remember correctly) Since Adobe doesn’t call it ‘Kuler’ anymore, neither will I, sorry my Creolian friends, your linguistic 15 minutes are up.

At least in Norwegian it would kinda mean this:

tlc-logo@2x

Anyway, Adobe Color CC is a add -on and web tool to help with picking and editing colour schemes at the the artists leisure.

It serves more as a visual aid and hexadecimal colour system database, easily organizing RGB values into usable palettes and schemes.

Examples:

Monochromatic
(Monochromatic oft makes people assume variations of blacks, greys and whites, in reality it is all the colors (tints, tones, and shades) of a single hue)

Monochromatic

Monochromatic

Triadic (The triadic colourscheme uses three colors equally spaced around the color wheel)
TRIAD

Complementary (Complementary colors are pairs of colors which, when combined, cancel each other out. Anyone who dies their hair blonde knows all about about this when their hair turns yellow orange – they tone it with a blueish purple to cancel out the brassy tones…I mean -I know nothing of this phenomena :s)

COMPLEMENTRY

Analogous (Analogous colors are groups of three colors that are next to each other on the color wheel, with one being the dominant color)ANALOGOUS

Of course, again, there are other colour schemes not coved by Colour CC like Achromatic, Tetradic, Contrast and other laws, but can certainly be done by eye.
