  • 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.
          That or use this as a quick cheat sheet: (take in mind these are RGB colors)

            This is exactly what I was planning on trying on one of them, and see if it works. I am an old first class keyliner and ruby cutter from waaaay back.

            Thanks guys! The forum looks nice and clean, I like it. The only thing I am wondering about is if you have a PM function on these message boards? Thanks =)
