Learn the basics of Colour Theory

Colour is manipulative, controlling, enchanting and beguiling. It follows, then, that it pays dividends to learn the basics of what makes colour work and how to effectively use it in your design and branding projects. Not everyone studies colour theory at school nor has had the pleasure of reading Kandinsky's work notes on its psychological and spiritual effectiveness.

I just discovered, however, a rather spiffy website that goes far in visually explaining the basic fundamentals of colour theory as well as providing some links to some very useful tools.

I came across this remarkably concise and awesome article on colour theory and its application in websites and design. It serves as a great resource for anyone embarking on creating or rejuvenating a brand who wants to be clever about it.
