Colour Palette Magazine Article

Here I have designed a magazine article which is based on my original idea, however I have focused on the use of a colour palette.

To achieve this colour palette I picked a few key colours from the image used in the header. I then used these colours to make borders round the images, to colour the text and I also made some blocks in the background where both the images and text sit.

I like how the colour palette is still fairly subtle, but helps to make certain aspects of the design stand out more. I also feel like the colours compliment each other really well.

Compared to my first attempt at designing the magazine article, I feel like this one looks much better. I think that the subtle use of colour gives it a more interesting appearance and the text looks much tidier because I have justified it this time. I’ve also aligned the text boxes and images better – the margins around these are now much neater.

Colour Palette Bauhaus Poster

Here’s a few examples of my take on a Bauhaus inspired poster but I have tried out various different colour palettes this time, compared to my original design where I used traditional Bauhaus style colours.

Here I’ve used a colour palette using similar shades. I like this one because the colours all compliment each other really well.

This posters colour palette was chosen using compound colours. Despite the colours all being quite different they still seem to compliment each other and don’t clash. I also feel that the use of different colours on this one help the shapes and text stand out more.

Here I used a monochromatic colour palette. I feel that it is quite similar to the first one where I used similar shades. This helps in giving the poster a uniform look.

Overall I like how the use of a colour palette helps to create an image in which the colours compliment each other compared to if you were to choose random colours. It helps the poster really come together.
