What it IS: This is a lovely little book filled with colors, color combinations, moods, visuals, designs, ideas, and more color, color, color! I find it sparks reactions, starts dialogue, and fuels creativity for myself and for my clients. As a professional designer, I find this is great to use with clients to help them get VISUALLY into the their project so I can get out of them the things I need to create and produce an effective product that pleases the client AND fulfills its function. I also leave it out on the coffee table in my lounge (with my portfolio) so clients can look at it and they do.
What it is NOT: This is not a book about color theory or color management. Although it includes some basic text about how different colors are supposed to convery different things in the marketing and communications world, which may be somewhat useful on some ocassions, color can be so subjective to the individual, the culture, the times, that I wouldn't follow the text as absolute.
Recommended? Yes, if you want a fun, inspiring and useful little book that is also lovely to look at and helpful to share with your clients.
Finally, the book is full of outstanding real-world examples of projects using the palettes discussed. Even if I'm working on a project with an already established color palette, I turn to this book for design inspiration.
In my opinion, this is a must-have book for any designer.
Also included are some basics on color theory, setting moods with color, and some useful advice in choosing appropriate colors for different projects.
Well written, easy to read, and to the point, this book has become a favorite on my desk!
Color has huge importance in the world of design and communication - Leatrice's book walks you through clearly, distinctly and with excellent examples and direction.
I've taught classes on Color Theory and Using Color and I wouldn't dare step in front of my classrooms without this book in hand. I refer it to colleagues and students every chance I get.
Whether you are in print design, digital media (that's me) -- or simply love color and it's applications in all mediums... you will benefit from having this book in your library.
