August 20th Meeting

There have been many times in my life where I look at something that I
have wrapped, built, coded, or designed and said to myself, “Those
colors don’t look quite right.” At these times I usually hang my head
in shame and move on, not fully understanding the problem or knowing
where to look for a solution.

Thankfully for me (and hopefully for you too), John McCaffrey, a
Multimedia Design Instructor at Hennepin Technical College, will be
engaging our group in a presentation about how we can begin to address
the issue of “color” in our projects. His topic description follows:

“Making good color choices does not have to be hard. All it takes is a
plan. Learn just enough (and hopefully a bit more) color theory to be

Combining a bit of science, psychology, history, art, and modern
technology you will learn how we process color information. Armed with
this information you will be able to develop your own plan to use
color effectively.

We will examine how color is implemented in some of the different
design tools (Photoshop, Illustrator, and Flash). Learn how to manage
color between the different applications. Learn about the strengths
and weaknesses of each application when working with color.”

Please join us on Wednesday for John’s presentation!
