Introduction of color: The particular visual sensation caused by the light emitted by, transmitted through, or reflected from the object.Color is a sensation which occurs when light enters in eyes. Light waves enter the eye an focused on the retina by the lance of the eye.
The perception of color is a sensory experience. The color of an object is seen by the eye when white light is shone upon the object’s surface. The surface reflects some colors and absorbs others. It is the reflected light (or wavelength) that is picked up by the eye. For example, a cherry is reflecting red light and absorbing other colors.
Within the eye, the retina contains receptors called rods and cones. The cones react to color wavelengths whilst the rods react to brightness. There are three types of cone: red, green and blue. Each color has a different wavelength – blues, greens and violets have shorter wavelengths, while reds, oranges and yellows have longer wavelengths. When color wavelengths fall on the retina, the brain interprets the signals as color.
Color or colour is the visual perceptual property corresponding in humans to the categories called red, blue, yellow, green and others. Color derives from the spectrum of light (distribution of light power versus wavelength) interacting in the eye with the spectral sensitivities of the light receptors.
The science of color is sometimes called chromatics, chromatography, colorimetric, or simply color science. It includes the perception of color by the human eye and brain, the origin of color in materials, color theory in art, and the physics of electromagnetic radiation in the visible range (that is, what we commonly refer to simply as light)
|The colors of the visible light spectrum|
|color||wavelength interval||frequency interval|
|red||~ 700–635 nm||~ 430–480 THz|
|orange||~ 635–590 nm||~ 480–510 THz|
|yellow||~ 590–560 nm||~ 510–540 THz|
|green||~ 560–490 nm||~ 540–610 THz|
|blue||~ 490–450 nm||~ 610–670 THz|
Electromagnetic radiation is characterized by its wavelength (or frequency) and its intensity. When the wavelength is within the visible spectrum (the range of wavelengths humans can perceive, approximately from 390 nm to 750 nm), it is known as “visible light”.
Most light sources emit light at many different wavelengths; a source’s spectrum is a distribution giving its intensity at each wavelength. Although the spectrum of light arriving at the eye from a given direction determines the color sensation in that direction, there are many more possible spectral combinations than color sensations.
Red, yellow and blue are the primary colors. Primary colors are the most basic colors. You can’t make them by mixing any other colors. Orange, green and purple are the secondary colors. A secondary color is made by mixing two primary colors. For instance, if you mix red and yellow, you get orange.
The Color Wheel:
A color wheel shows how colors are related. On a color wheel, each secondary color is between the primary colors that are used to make it. Orange is between red and yellow because orange is made by mixing red with yellow. What goes between secondary colors and primary colors? Intermediate, or tertiary, colors are made by mixing a primary color with a secondary color that is next to it. Red-orange, yellow-orange and yellow-green are some intermediate colors.
Red, Yellow, Blue. These are the three basic colors that cannot be created by any combination of other colors. All other colors are the result of mixing these three.
Green, Orange, Purple. These are the colors formed by mixing the primary colors.
Yellow-orange, red-orange, red-purple, blue-purple, blue-green and yellow-green. These are the colors formed by mixing a primary and a secondary color. In other words, it fills in the rest of our
Any three colors which are side by side on a 12 part color wheel, such as yellow-green, yellow, and yellow-orange. Usually one of the three colors is the dominate color.
In regards to the color wheel, complementary colors are any two colors directly opposite each other, such as red and green. Complementary colors create maximum contrast and maximum stability. Be careful when working with fully saturated complementary colors for digital interfaces: they can be straining on the eye.
Here’s another one of that I will let you in on and also where I grabbed the graphics from. This is a great site that will help you put some harmony in your app.
Additive colors are what the web, television, and mobile devices are made of. In Photoshop we create all of our app screenshots, backgrounds, and graphics in RGB format. RGB stands for Red, Green, and Blue, and these three are the additive primary colors. When various combinations of these three are mixed together, all the remaining colors are created. In Photoshop, you can manage the RGB color by double clicking the color palette. The two most common ways to adjust color in Photoshop is to either type in numeric RGB values directly in text fields or to just drag the color picker over the color palette.
On a scale from 0 to 255, every numeric increment changes the color in a subtle way. Just to get the hang of it, there is nothing subtle about the differences below!
To the contrary, if all RGB values are set to zero, the color generated is black. This shows the corresponding hex value #000000.
Getting a little more into it, you should be able to predict what color will be generated when Red is set to a value of 255 and Green and Blue are set to 0.
Nonetheless, I couldn’t resist another screen shot. With a value of 255 in Red spot, and 0 in the Green and Blue, we get a fully saturated Red color. Green and Blue change accordingly with the same values rearranged.
As an example of what happens when we start messing with multiple different values, with a value of 255 in Red and Green, we create a fully saturated yellow color with the hex value of #ffff00.
So, by solely changing the values of Red, Green, or Blue, we can create the exact color needed for the design at hand. Knowing how colors interact with each other is really going to help your applications and web sites show a little more harmony and cohesion.
So now comes the fun part. With the general theory out the way, how do you know which color is best for your app? Colors can have different effects on people and can even hold different cultural meanings beyond what may be naturally intuitive. Red has been known to increases blood circulation and stimulates our body and mind. For these reasons, it is thus often associated with sex and love. Orange has been known to increase overall energy. Blue can be used to treat pain and is known as a stimulant and can often attribute to sleeplessness. Keep that in mind the next time you are staring at that little blue light on your television!
Knowing how people react to colors by nature can be an important tid-bit of information to keep in your back pocket. Color association and color psychology go hand-and-hand, and both are worth further independent research for the serious designer.
Generally, when two or more colors are mixed with each other, a distinct intermediate color is formed which the combination of colors is mixed in their formation. In this regard, a careful study of color combination processes and proportions was developed in the late 17th century, which is commonly known as color theory today. This theory deals with standardizing different color-mixing techniques within the domains of visual aesthetics and harmony, color frequencies, identities and color constitution.
In the visual arts, color theory is a body of practical guidance to color mixing and the visual impacts of specific color combination. There are also definitions (or categories) of colors based on the color wheel: primary color, secondary color and tertiary color. Although color theory principles first appeared in the writings of Leone Battista Alberta (c.1435) and the notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci (c.1490), a tradition of “color theory” began in the 18th century, initially within a partisan controversy around Isaac Newton’s theory of color (Optics, 1704) and the nature of so-called primary. From there it developed as an independent artistic tradition with only superficial reference to colorimetric and vision science.
For practical purposes, colors are grouped in various classifications which may be better understood by reference to a diagram. The three Primary colors are red, yellow and blue in their strongest tones. No mixture of other colors will produce any one of these three.
The nearest objects in nature approximating these three colors are the red of the geranium flower, the yellow of the lemon skin and the blue of a sunny southern sky. In pigments, these are known as vermilion, chrome yellow and cobalt blue, although other names are sometimes used for chemical combinations for custom picture frames that are close to these.
If any two of these pigments are combined, they produce what are known as the secondary colors. These are orange, purple, and green and are produced respectively by the combination of red and yellow, red and blue, yellow and blue.
In addition to the primaries and secondary, there are colors known as tertiaries, which are formed by the combination of primaries and secondary. It is impossible to indicate the tertiaries in a diagram; therefore the list is given below.
1. Pigment theory:
Primary color- Red, Yellow, Blue
Secondary color- Orange, Violet, Green
Yellow + Red = Orange
Yellow + Blue = Green
Red + Blue = Violet
Primary Color – Red, Green, Blue
Secondary color- Yellow, Oyan, Purple
Green + Red = Yellow
Green + Blue = Oyan
Red + Blue = Purple
There are three items which are used to specify color.
Hue: Hue is a true color, without tint or shade. This is generally what we mean when we say “color”.
For example: Pink
Chromaticity the “colorfulness” of a hue. Chroma, the Greek word for color, is really a measurement of color purity.
Value the brighter the color the higher the value. A paint chip, showing a color from lighter to darker, is a perfect example of changing value.
Saturation the intensity of a color. A color with high saturation is devoid of gray. A color low in saturation is closer to gray.
Monochromatic A color scheme using one color or several values (shades or tints) of one color. This color combination can be very soothing and calming.
Analogous Any three colors side-by-side on the color wheel (example: orange, red-orange and red). Analogous colors are often found in nature and can be very pleasing to the eye. U Triadic Three colors that are equidistant from each other on the color wheel (example: red, yellow and blue).
Neutral Colors that are not found on the color wheel such as gray, beige and brown.
Warm Colors do not include any blue
Cool Colors do not include any red
Tints adding white to a pure hue
Shades adding black to a pure hue
Tones adding gray to a pure hue sually, one color is more dominate than the others.
Color theory has its application in many areas of study and manufacturing sciences. These areas include visual studies, fine arts, architectural design, fashion design, interior or exterior decoration, object identity definition, painting, sculpture design and object modeling. Further, those who use the procedures and theoretical methods of color theory are typically artists, decorators, designers and scientists; these professions require fundamental color harmony and context principles to give certain objects their true aesthetic identity.
Below is a color reference chart that demonstrates how our signature colors perform with our secondary color palette. Suggested usage is to incorporate ONLY one signature color (maroon being the preferred signature color) at all times along with ONLY two secondary colors. The proportion of signature colors to secondary colors should be 50/25/25: 50% signature color + 25% each of secondary colors. Black, white, and various shades of gray are exempt from this rule and can be used as needed.
They use very neutral color for the formal clothes
For casual clothes yellow use primary colours as well as secondary colours .
Yellow uses different types of colours for women’s wear. From primary to tertiary they have all kinds of colours in their range
For children ‘Yellow’ uses very bright colours. They also use very light and sweet colours for children within 2 years.
Yellows should try to improve their colour sense and use more range of colours.
Usage of accent colour is less in the clothes
Most of the casual wears have the same colours.
The colours of the children wear are not suitable according to their age.
Another major drawback of yellow is that they are mainly focused on casual wear .There is actually o percent of party wear in Yellow for example if compared with other boutique shops they do not have any collection of bridal or wedding clothes.
There casual wears like jeans, tops t shirts are of extremely good quality but when it comes to salwar kamiz they are not maintaining quality products.
Traditional clothes of women are very few and don’t match yellows quality at all.
‘Yellow’ should be more wide in choosing colours.
Colors’ of the children wear should be more bright.
But yellow should focus more on the culture of Bangladesh when it comes to styling.
If they can introduce a contemporary look which has both the western and eastern taste then no one can come near Yellow’s collection.
Overall ‘Yellow’ can be described as the most promising boutique houses. They have a huge variety of products. Their price range is very reasonable. They also try to come up with something new and innovative all the time. Yellow has created a new dimension for the youngsters.
