Web Design: Contrast And Color And How Young Guns Abuse It

Color has become an important element in media since the early 1950s and ever since people understood its importance to everyday living. Even Web design professionals cannot imagine a design without color, or designing with only black and white (and its lighter and darker hues) although there's special projects that need only these mundane colors as their staple option for every project.

People are usually obsessed with colors. When the first color tv was introduced to the market in 1953, people from the upper class promptly (and without hesitation) disposed of their black and white TVs. Although the expertise was not as ideal as expected and unlike the way it was mentioned on print ads, consumers gladly embraced it for simple reason: having five primary colors on your traditional entertainment set is better than two.

Reading design blogs and magazines for years have opened me to a realization that web design is slowly transforming in to a fad. like photography, writing, and painting. At this point, the ubiquitous YouTube video on the Web is a less pricey the least costly, the most obtainable way of learning codes and all the basic things about designing. Yet, what people would not very learn on these free videos, weblog posts, and magazines are the basic and deep understanding of colors. It requires large experience to understand how colors intertwine with each other, says Italian contrast professional. That is why colors are superbly abused these days. Because of these ever-present lousy tutorials on the Web, aspiring designers are apathetic about going to a formal school or approaching a seasoned mentor to learn the basics, the actual rudiments of Web design, including the importance of color and contrast, not only to modern media but to our every day lives as well.

Now that the Color TVs bright history is not as fascinating as it first happened, people from the design industry appear to be showing tiny respect for it. Designers the young guns have been abusing its importance, which resulted to hundreds of color-sick and contrast-ill sites. Even young pros like Jacob Cass and David Airey have blatantly showed their ire and concern for these designers on their blogs. Some Saul Bass protgs also say that these designers have been ruining the colorful industry for years. They ought to return to design school to [at least] understand the basics of the Color Wheel and learn the way it works. Literally, there is large alarm shocking the modern web design industry today.
