This weekend I’m planning to write about color theory.

Practical color theory, in fact. Color selection and treatment varies a lot based on area of application.

In film: creating mood, enhancing setting. In web: communicating function, organizing systems. In games: tapping into primal recognition.

@stephen if someone likes more technical color theory I highly recommend the What The f* series by troy

@sirjofri that’s a great resource. I wouldn’t categorize it as “color theory” since it’s focused on explaining the mechanisms of digital color.

Theory, to me, is all about deciding what colors to use.

Thanks for sharing tho - lots of good info.
