I. Hue is the actual color (Yellow, Red, Blue, etc). I really learned a deal about Hue in our Color Wheel project. It really helped me understand how all of the colors work together and how they compliment eachother.
Saturation is the intensity of a color. In the emphasis problem I used saturation to emphasize my focal point in the project. We also used saturation a great deal in our repeat pattern problem. In each palette we had to use a given saturation, as well as follow the guidelines for value and contrast. I think that it made it very difficult and challenged us on all levels.
Value is the lightness or darkness of a color. The value scale project at the very beginning of the quarter helped me to understand how many values there really are. The 10 line composition project was a challenge for me. It was interesting to see how color and value correspond. At the time I had a pretty hard time matching the color values to the gray values however, if I had the chance to do it again now I think I would do much better.
II. I think I learned the most from the 10 line composition project. It really helped me look at value and color critically. It was very challenging for me at first, but after more experience throughout the quarter I think I have really begun to grasp the concept. Given the chance to do it again, I think I would be able to do a much better job now.
III. My favorite project would probably be the transparency. Although it was very overwhelming due to the amount of steps involved, I really liked the branding aspects to it. I really think it helped me to seek out inspiration from the ads rather than just come up with a random idea off the top of my head. I liked that we were able to use our creativity a little bit differently with this project as well.
