1: Having watched the video with Nigel French – describe, in your own words, what each of these colour systems means: RGB and CMYK.
2: Make use of Adobe Colour and develop four different colour schemes. Please hand in screenshots of your schemes:
1: CMYK and RGB are both colour systems to help with the mixing and identifying of different colours. CMYK is based on the principle of subtractive colour, beginning with white and ending in black. This system is somewhat limited, and is used in printing to give us a most correct colour rendering in the print process.
RGB is based on the principle of additive colour, beginning sith black and ending in white. This gives us a witer system with more colours that appear brighter.
Use a colour photo of your choice and create the following colour effects . You should hand in four separate works of the same photo with the following effects:
1: Create a fluorescent duotone using a Gradient Map Adjustment layer.
2: Apply a monochrome look (this is not greyscale, choose a different colour than black).
3: Split toning of the image (note that the tool in Photoshop for ‘Split Toning’ was changed to ‘Color Gradient’).
4: Freestyle: Create a colour effect of your choice.
Fluorescent duotone 2 versions
Design a book cover for one of the following:
a.) “Rosemary’s Baby” by Ira Levin: use complementary colours to express anguish and uncertainty.
b.) “Animal Farm” by George Orwell: use analogous colours with a contrasting accent to express disagreement and discontent.
c.) “The Secret Garden” by Frances Hodgson Burnett: use secondary colours to express naivety, honesty and harmony.
The book cover must contain the title and the author’s name.
You must clearly make use of colour to express the desired effects.
