i have learned a lot this semester about graphic design. for instance learning about the graphic design principles like movement repetition texture and so on. learning about no window offices to having to present every single class!has taught me more or less whats it like the in real world. as frustrating it was learning about color i did learn that color is a very complicated topic and that its viewed differently among the eyes of many. but one thing i know for sure is that color is made up of three qualities hue, saturation, and value. when it came to the 2 final projects on color i was more focused on actually getting them done on time rather then understanding the meaning behind the project. i wish i could’ve paid attention more when learning about color because it was a bit confusing.overall it was a good semester met new people and learned a lot i know this is just the beginning of a long journey but im all for it and yes i will be keeping my design journal for future reference.
thank you professor for your time and patience.
“Tracking the rise of color”by Martha Schwendener published Aug, 6 2010
this article was about how through time color became popular. when reading the beginning it explained how three men were successful in their careers with just the basics black and white photos! which was around the 1930s-1950s. Then color came along in the 1960s and these men Robert Frank, Walker Evans, and Ansel Adams weren’t such big fans. instead it was attracted by a younger generation group known as the “starburst” ( ironic name ). Then the article goes into how color came into the world by a color process known as auto-chrome which was colored film which was made by the Lumière brothers . eventally it gets into how color made its way into film. the article was quit interesting.
Because color results from reflected light waves transmitted through imperfect eyes and brains everyone sees color differently. color is made up of 3 main essential qualities related to our eyes which are hue, saturation, and value.
hue- a distinction between color identities as defined by their wave lengths.
saturation- the relative dullness or brightness of a color
value- whether a color appears light or dark.

This project was by far the most difficult. Not only was it handed in late but also it was not completely finished. one of the hardest things to do was the mixing of the colors to get a specific color. in the beginning i didn’t even have the paint that i needed to make the colors. so the red, yellow and oranges in both color wheels were made with different paints. When making blue that was the hardest part i felt like it was always too dark and when i tried to make it lighter it would look to watery. in the end though i managed to make blues that were good enough to put in my color wheel. Another thing about the project that i eventually figured out was that the ryb color wheel was not supposed to be as light as i had made it also i think i added more colors then i should’ve. in the end i didn’t really learn much besides mixing i feel like color in general is a very broad topic ill learn over time.
honestly i thought this cast would be about colors or something but when i heard it it was the complete opposite as i continued to read after the 2 minutes it became very hostle i stopped hearing it and well yea…
