After the Easter holidays, I went back to class on Friday.
Thomas lectured us about a specific element of design: Colour. He talked about the colour theory, and how images with different hues and contrasts can convey a mood. We then had to do an activity where we had to create 2 posters that show the colour theory, based on two songs.
The first song was “Lisbon, OH,” by Bon Iver, and because the song was calm and gentle, I decided to use different coloured flowers for my first poster, to show the song’s sweet tone. I also blurred the flowers a bit as well, and put them in a rhythm. I think this poster’s alright, because it shows a very warm feeling.
The second song was “In the Hall of the Mountain King” by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. For my poster, I wanted to make a visualisation of how the song keeps getting more faster, intense, and louder. I like this poster, because the jagged shape makes the representation of the song pretty simple.
The next activity that I did next was to add different palettes to different versions of logos. Each version of a logo has the name of the palette that I’m supposed to add for them.
My favourite from this first batch of different coloured logos is the high contrast one, because the bright and loud colours stand out in the logo.
My favourite from this group of logos is the analogous logo, because it looks to have a subtle three-dimensional form.
My favourite from the third group of logos is the optional logo, because I really like the contrast of the dark green with the light green.
My favourite from the fourth group of logos is the monochromatic logo, because the black, white, and grey of the image looks old and retro.
My favourite from this fifth group of logos is the triads logo, because the different and related colours blend really well together.
My favourite from the last group of logos is the complimentary logo, because the gradient and contrast add a three-dimensional form to the little circles.
