Color Selection and Web Design

www.mlwebco.com – Color Selection and Web Design – In this video I explain how you can go about learning to become better at choosing colors for your web design. Color theory and color selection is one of the hardest things for me to explain. Having no formal training myself, being able to blend and choose the right colors is something that you have to learn and become better at overtime. You ultimately know what looks right when looking at other nice designs. Simply study those designs and become better with practice. http Email: mlocke@mlwebco.com

Web designers must wear many hats. Among books on Web design, Web Design All-in-One For Dummies is the one that helps you successfully wear all those hats without losing your head.

Web Design All-in-One For Dummies also helps you learn how to choose a Web editor and graphics program, how to make your site accessible to the widest possible audience, and when it’s time to call in a pro like author Sue Jenkins. It’s just what you need to start and manage a great site.

  • Sure thing :). Oh, I’m gonna send you a quick email. 😛

  • Keep me posted on what you learn. Can always use more tricks. 🙂

  • But, i did learn guitar in one day. 😛 I didn’t think of the copy/paste method. One of my next classes is on color theory, so these methods should come in handy for that too. 🙂

  • Yup, color is one of those things you just learn to become good at over time.

  • Even going back to when I was in high school doing destop publishing courses, colour choices were always easy for me. I don’t really have any clue about colour theory, but 9 times out of 10 I can pick colours that look good together by just my gut. (It’s that 1 time out of 10 that makes everything more difficult.)
