Colour & Texture
May 2, 2014 § Leave a comment
As far as colour is concerned, after experimenting, I’ve decided that the darker colours work best with the imagery. Dark colours compliment the design greatly, making it more prominent as a result of the darker tones. Lighter colours appeared to retract from the design, in my opinion, thus the reason I shall not be using them.
With dark backgrounds comes light text, in this case: pure white, making it appear more distinctive.
I experimented with a range of background textures to see if they at all harmonised with the design. Textures I tested included materials such as papers and other fabrics, wood, wall textures, painted textures, and grungy textures. I found that the grungy/warn texture effects gave the design some extra depth and personality, gaining a dark under tone, to the already bleak wording used.
The first gallery shows colour, the second: texture, and the third the chosen texture and various shades of grey.
