  • 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.

            Well, who knows. They might have their reasons that would make sense if we knew them.

            You're right, though, it's their money and if that's what they insist they want -- despite your best...

            I'm grateful for the time both you spent to inform me and respect your expertise. Didn't mean to sound like I was disregarding what you shared. Just figure if it's not going to make much of a difference...

            Ha! I sure wouldn't try it with somebody's face.

            I just happen to have the artwork for what I was talking about. It was part of a large outdoor display at a marina advising boaters about...
