About This Class

Hey!

My name is Sarah and in this course I want to share with you some of the knowledge I have gained in the almost 20 years I have been a Graphic Designer, from the basics of the colour wheel and the color harmonies to the psychology of colour in branding.

We take a look at the color systems used in design and technology, (RGB, CMYK and Pantone color). With some class projects filled with useful tips on where to find great color resources in Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Color.

By the end of this course you should feel more confident when picking color schemes for your projects, you will know the basic theory of colour and how to create killer color combinations that work.

Thanks so much for enrolling in my class - I’m so excited to have you here :)

Some Reviews...

Really well organized & engaging class! Plenty of examples, time for exercises, description of technical steps & downloadable resources. Would highly recommend!

"I love the class. This is an easy to follow guide to the fundamentals of color for illustrators and designers. I definitely recommend it. Thank you, Sarah!"

“I recommend this class if someone is interested in starting Graphic Design. You learn the basics of color and how to use color in Adobe Illustrator.”

“Great course. Great for beginners and anyone that needs to revisit the color picking process. The process is broken down into simple, easy to follow, steps. I really needed to see the steps others walk through to create great color combinations. Every artist will do it differently but we all learn so much by understanding the processes that others use. I am glad I took this course. The project is an organized little task that articulates important parts of this process.”
