With over 500,000 copies sold in this popular series, the Designer's Guide to Color collection now boasts a fifth title. Using an abundance of color combinations and shapes, Designer's Guide to Color 5 contains extensive descriptions for creating colors that convey emotions or impressions, and acts as a guide for making up new ones. Each color combination includes a description of the density of colors, showing tint percentages for printing. Ranging from earthy color combinations that give the impression of autumn, and cool, metallic combinations that suggest modern, to deep, vivid tones that convey elegance, this volume is an indispensable reference for designers, as well as for those working with advertising, packaging, fashion, interior design, fabric design, or illustration—literally anyone making a color choice.
