About This Class

This class will make you a better Graphic Designer.

We’ll be learning color basics about RGB, CMYK and SPOT Color. Then, we’ll create an RGB swatch from a photo and convert it to CMYK for print.

This class is for Graphic Design beginners or anyone who needs to get something printed. This is not a class on color theory, rather a guide to actually working with color on a computer.

After this class, you will understand the different types of color for both screen and print and know how and where to use them!

Wow this is absolutely brilliant and exactly what I had been trying to find out about for a while and it's only now thanks to this class that I finally have the vital key to designing with confidence knowing that my designs will print in the colors intended (hmm looks like I'll need to amend a couple of existing designs also!) - thanks so much and also very clearly explained! :)
Answers so many of my questions concerning color.
