Colour Theory for Digital Design

ACAD is partnering with OCAD U to provide a set of online courses for you to complete on your own schedule.

In this studio/seminar course students explore the effective use of colour as a digital design element. Topics include the physiology of vision, perceptual psychologies, ethnography, colour interactions, colour bias, value, saturation, temperature, and calibration. Student in this class will learn through studio projects, group discussion, demonstrations, presentations, and critique. Information acquired in this course should assist students to use colour appropriately and effectively when determining visual outcomes for online and print production. All students are required to provide their own laptops with Adobe CC Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign software to complete the in-class assignments.
