Research Point 2: Digital Resources for Colour

Investigating and researching the digital resources has been a mixture of fun and interest and frustration! I tried out and played with all the links but found the Adobe and Colourpixel the easiest.

I found the concept of colour hunter is great – the fact that you can feed in an image and get a palette created:

The problem I had was with the interface (lots of pop up ads) and I just could not work out how to access my colour palettes! So I only ever got one at a time.

Using digital resources could really help when wanting to experiment quickly with how colours might look together. I did find inevitably when printing out that some colours weren’t true to what they had been on screen.

I found that there is a lot of work to be done between what is being selected on the screen and what goes to print. I discovered many of my colour samples did not print out well. They can look very different on different screens, and therefore come out very different in print.
