Graphic Design II: This "Dynamics of Color" project introduces students to basic color theory principles such as: subtractive & additive colors; color properties of hue, saturation, brightness; color theory historical timeline facts; CMYK and RBG; color schemes; warm and cool colors; emotional effects of color; color association.  Students will select a few color theory elements and present them in a tabloid-size poster using Adobe Illustrator. Students are encouraged to think outside of the box with the overall design and approach to this assignment.
