Its your choice//Designs

For the second half of the publication i am creating designs using colour and blending modes on coloured backgrounds to experiment with the colour and show colour experimentations.
Initial design: I have taken these designs from my design sheets and digitalised them, these are just the start of the designs in which i will add colour to them from here.

Designs: From the initial designs above i have added colour to them, and using different blending modes and fills i have shown that you can experiment with colour digitally. These designs are based upon the 7 kittens contrasts too

These are the designs i have produced for the design section of my publication. I am pretty pleased with the outcomes of these. I did find it quite hard to come up with the amount i needed that were different from each other, but basing them on the contrasts did help me produce them all. I haven't really done pattern design, like this before, so this was something new to me, which i did enjoy but its not something that i am overly fond of.

These last two spreads of the book are showing type in CMYK mode and what happens when you overlap them. The very last spread introduces colour to the background which in turns effects the type and the outcome of the type on the page.

The 7 contrasts

These here are just the illustrations of the contrasts, a way to try and make the contrasts easier to understand.

These are the final layouts of the informative pages at the beginning of the book, these go through each of the 7 contrasts, explaining what each one is. To start with there is statement on what the contrast means, this is then explained more next to it, which hopefully makes the understanding of the contrast easy. After there is the illustration of this.
The idea of the page layout is that all the information is in a linear line. Starting from the fact of the statement which is the true meaning of the contrast, then moves on to a more detailed explanation, which is more wordy and easier to understand, then the illustration at the end. 
I know that most people will be attracted straight to the illustrations which i have tried to make easy to understand, but then there is information to back this up.
I do really like the end layout of these pages, i think that they work well with the style of the book and is something different to what i normally do.
