  • Colour in graphic design systems

    Does anyone know some examples of where colour is used as a primary componant in a graphic design system?

    This is my pen tool. There are many like it, but this one is MINE. My pen tool is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My pen tool without me is useless. Without my pen tool, I am useless.

    there is no grey area when it comes to 1 color logos.

      The White Stripes — red, white and black

      First that came to mind.

      McDonald's also strongly uses their red and yellow as being pretty dominant. I suppose it depends on "how dominant" you're looking for.

        Smells like homework. Entering "Colour in graphic design systems" and/or "colour is used as a primary componant" into Google and this thread pops up as the first result. Makes it easy for the instructor.

          Pantone is the way to go.

            MarComm was meant to bridge the gap between people who knew how to do market research and people who know how to communicate. But that just creates silos and causes jockeying for position. It's part of...

            MarComm and just plain Comm are considered two separate fields too. Still can't figure out why.
            There seems to be a very tenuous line drawn at the manufacturing/visual boundary.

            Communication design is broader in scope because it uses elements that aren't graphics like audio, video, copywriting, performance, marketing, etc in addition to using graphics.
