In the digital technology environment, with all of its 1’s and 0’s, the designer must have a comprehensive understanding of how color is generated and applied. This course provides an overview of the binary number system, (don’t worry, no heavy math…) and covers the fundamental aspects of color modes, including RGB for light-based projects and CMYK and flat colors for print projects. It explains the basic layout characteristics of pixels and vector-based art, and demystifies the function and application of color channels, alpha channels, composite modes and other color adjustments.
Course meets online. Course is non-credit.
