  • 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.

        Hint: Look at wayfinding.

          Pantone is the way to go.

            I've got a client that designed his own logo and simply wanted me to put it together. He only drew the outline and told me what colors to use. But I'm not sure if I can send this to him. Should I tell...

            Thanks for your feedback!
            I understand what you are saying. I just think i might be a monomaniac. I have no interest in building in other forms of graphic design. I will probably have a bad time....

            Hi, I'm very new to design and just starting out, so I'd appreciate some critique/advice/guidance on some book covers I made for a friend, and how I can improve as a designer.

            I do not have a degree in Graphic Design. My goal is to work freelance.
            This is what I am scared of since the country I live in does not respect design that much. You can rarely make a living out...
