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!

All undergrads should be required to undergo recruit training conducted by the essaywriter. They don't have to pass, just go through three months worth. All these issues will disappear—because the students will acquire the skills to deal with the problems themselves. What the military will be paid to conduct these boot camps will be more than made up by the cost savings of college counselors who will no longer be needed.

Color is the beautiful blend of nature because every color is adapted and picked up from the nature. But this video tutorial enhances our level of painting on this amazing Mac application and writeversity dissertation service provides nice stuff. So I really like the article because it really being wrote to tell us more about this software.

So for example, if I had a dark blue banner, and I have the text links marked as white, how could I have text in a white banner on the Voucher Codes same page to use black text links.
