The creative use of colour and its combinations in illustration, graphic and product design involves understanding how emotions are conveyed and how they affect our design and illustrations. We must also consider that colour is perceived differently in different countries and cultures. All this is widely explained in this second book in the Palette Perfect series, illustrated with projects by renowned international illustrators and designers, and organized by colours (identified with CMYK, RGB and HEX codes) and moods associated with the time of day. Based on real examples drawn from graphic design, product design and illustration, different innovative combinations and palettes are shown for each colour as well as the meaning it conveys. Intended for graphic designers, design students, fashion and interior design lovers, and all those interested in exciting and unexpected colour combinations that work.
