Have you ever been in class or in a training session and your professor or instructor starts a slideshow they made on powerpoint and you have difficulty focusing on the actual material because the overall composition is distracting? The color is especially throwing you off as the teacher has put white text over a bright red screen so the information is hard to read. If only someone would have talked to your professor about effective strategies on relaying their knowledge to their students.
Color Theory explores this exact idea, as described by Janie Kliever a writer for Canva, an online program used to create graphic design, “Traditional color theory can help you understand which colors might work well together (or not) and what kind of effect different combinations will create within your design” (Kliever). In other words, the idea of color theory is as much a scientific theory as an art theory. It combines psychological science as well as fine art to create an aesthetically pleasing color palette to the human eye. Color theory in conjunction with design can help your projects tremendously through just understanding the way it works.
