  • Colour in graphic design systems

    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.

        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.

            I use photobucket, but instead of pasting the link, I paste in the IMG tag it provides. That puts the image right in your post. I wonder if that would give you better results.

            Thank you, seamas. I submitted my labels last night. The final toned labeled were improved somewhat before submission - namely, the brewery logo included and drop shadows for the illustrations (link below)....
