COLOR THEORY 7th Grade Digital Design

Color plays a vitally important role in the world in which we live. Color can sway thinking, change actions, and cause reactions. It can irritate or soothe your eyes, raise your blood pressure or suppress your appetite. When used in the right ways, color can even save on energy consumption.

As a powerful form of communication, color is irreplaceable. Red means "stop" and green means "go." Traffic lights send this universal message. Likewise, the colors used for a product, web site, business card, or logo cause powerful reactions. Color Matters!

USING COLOR SCHEMES PROPERLY

OUR COLOR THEORY PROJECT

Using the medium of a deck of playing cards, we will illustrate our knowledge of color theory. You will create the fronts and backs of 6 numbered playing cards (each representing a different color harmony) and 3 face cards (representing color harmonies of your choice) for a total of 9 playing cards. We will also design, print and construct the box in which these cards will held using Photoshop templates found in the course.
