Colors – I must say that color really intimidates me and I wish that I could say that I understood everything that I read on page 38 about colors. I am glad that we there is a whole session dedicated to color because I certainly need to help. I have a hard time even distinguishing between warms and cools.
I learned that you should not use more than 5 colors on a design. I also learned that you have to be careful when combining saturated colors, because they can interfere with one another and increase eye fatigue.
The most interesting bit of information that I took from this reading is that there is no clear evidence supporting general effects of color on emotion or mood. This is a myth that I have heard over and over.
