The Colours Out of Space
As you can see, I've changed my blog colours - this time, I hope, with some sense of purpose. Yesterday, as part of my graphic design course, Jeff gave me a quick introduction to colour concepts, including the colour wheel, and now the blog uses a triad of primary colours - red, yellow and blue. I leave it to you to decide why I picked those three colours...
Jeff also gave me a homework assignment, and only YOU can help me complete it by looking at the graphic above and answering a series of questions:
1. Name each colour, from 1-6.
2. What emotion does each colour make you feel? E.G. 1 - envy, 2 - desire, 3 - sadness, etc.
3. What specific object (i.e., what noun) does each colour remind you of?
4. How would you use each colour? Or, in other words, what is the purpose of each colour?
5. Name an inappropriate use for each colour.
Please post your answer as a comment, or email me. Your help is greatly appreciated!
