LA – Color Theory, Part 3 (week 6)

The last assigment was to design a book cover for one of the following:
a.) “To the Lighthouse” by Virginia Wolf: use complementary colours to express anguish and uncertainty.
b.) “The Maiden’s Tale” by Margaret Atwood: use analogous colours with a contrasting accent to express disagreement and discontent.
c.) “The Little Prince” by Antoine de Saint-Exupery: use secondary colours to express naivety, honesty and harmony.

  • The book cover must contain the title and the author’s name.
  •  You must clearly make use of colour to express the desired effects.

I chose “The Little Prince” by Antoine de Saint-Exupery mostly because it’s the most familiar of these. Although I wish I would have had a bit more time to do it. I think I could have done better work and adjust the things more carefully. I have lot to learn how to use Photoshop and adjust the pictures. But I think it was a great learning experience and I think I was able to use the colors to express clearly the naivety, honesty and harmony of the book cover.

I used Kuler (Adobe Color) to get the secondary colors to my book cover.
