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!
