To be bright or to be contrasting?

Update, value and color intensity can be hard to mix in design work.


Sorry it’s been a while since I last updated. I have been working in the lab on the value studies. It takes a lot of time to find the right value and color for a design!! I like bright, high intensity/pure “happy” colors, yet those do not create a very dynamic design. It falls flat if I don’t mix in some darks to create dimension and contrast. That is where I am struggling. It most of the color studies that I have converted to black and white (like I showed you in the proposal post) have a lot of middle-tone boring greys. I need to diversify that without losing the fun bright colors I love. I’m working on creating a balance between the two, and will update with pictures as soon as a get a good couple of sets together (hopefully after spring break.) 🙂
