Great class, very helpful information.
This is a really helpful class. There are tons of information about colors that I didn't know. Also, it's really helpful to see how she applied the color palette to the website and know the rules she mentioned. I highly recommend this class!
Geri knows her stuff. Perfect class if you want to know how to approach color (for everyone) in your print or your web based projects.
