Color Terms, Tools, And More

Learn color terminology, color theory, and how to communicate your color ideas

About this course

In this course, you will learn color terminology, the basics of color theory, and how to communicate color information with your team.

If you are analyzing or designing a product or website, then you are working with color. Making color choices can be unconscious or intentional, depending on how much thought you put into them. Identifying colors that will create a great user experience can be a daunting task, especially if you don’t have the vocabulary to communicate about color with your UX team members. When you learn color terminology you will be better able to communicate your color design intentions.

You will learn:

  • The challenges involved with naming colors
  • The difference between the additive and subtractive color systems
  • How pigment color is different than digital color
  • How monochromatic color schemes are built
  • The definition of tints, tones, and shades and how to create them
  • How the Adobe Color Picker and Paletton help build color schemes

 

and much, much more!
