Color on the Web: Skillshare Class Launch!

Posted in Art & Design, Tutorials, Web Design, on

Need a weekend project? Looking for a better way to add color theory into your workflow?

I’m excited to announce that I’m teaching Color on the Web I: Design Cohesive Palettes, and Color on the Web II: Design for Clarity and Compliance over at Skillshare!

Both classes can be completed at your own pace, and students will receive feedback after submitting their projects. All you need is a copy of Photoshop or Illustrator to follow along with the lessons. If you don’t have a copy of either, head over to the Adobe website and download a 30-day trial!

Color on the Web I: Design Cohesive Palettes

The first class will teach you how to develop a color palette for a fictional company called BikeBook—a bicycle rental company with a twist. You’ll use a client brief for guidance, just like a real project. Because you’ll be focusing on color only, the logo, photography, and website mockup templates will be provided for you!

Color on the Web II: Design for Clarity and Compliance

The second class teaches all about color blindness and how to design for it, and you’ll learn how to implement your palette from class one into the website design. We’ll also cover style guides and how to hand your color choices off to other developers and designers.

Behind the Scenes

I’ve been working on these classes in-between client work since February. I wrote, filmed, and edited these classes myself, which was a pretty interesting experience for someone who’ve never worked with video or Adobe Premiere before! I shot it all on my iPhone 5s with a Glif clip mounted to a tripod, and I used a Røde NTG2 Shotgun microphone input to a Zoom H4N recorder for audio. While a couple of angles have sound that seems a little too far away (should have moved that boom a little closer!), I’m overall pretty happy with how they turned out for my first time video editing.

Super special thanks to Becki & Chris for lending me their lighting equipment, too!

Know any art & design students? Interested in taking the classes yourself? I hope you’ll join me and spread the word!

We had a company design a logo for our business. We use the logo on a web page. We want to match one of the colors to use it for text on the web page. I contacted the company who designed the logo and they gave me the pantone color, the RGB color and the hex. Assignment Help UK & I used the hex number in CSS and while it does change the color it isn't a real match. The original JPG logo that's displayed on that web page looks darker for that color.
