The print industry normally subscribes to two main color models in order to achieve a particular design’s chrome requirements. These models include the Subtractive Color Models, and the Additive Color Models. In comparison, Subtractive Color Models employ reflective light, whereas Additive Color Models opt for projective light, hence the latter’s wider or more exhaustive color gamut during color creation. Under the subtractive principle, the Cyan Magenta Yellow Black (CMYK) four color processing is the most widely used.
Blue is a calming colour that is associated with terms like peace, truth, honesty, stability, confidence and wisdom. It is often found in nature as it’s the color of the sky, sea and mountains. And what about web design? Why do we see so many blue websites in different niches?
In this article I will present some examples of designs on logo, website, printing such as business card, brochure which designed in blue color scheme. That all can be used as inspiration in the use of the color blue as the main color scheme in the design.
