Duo Tone: Limited Colour Schemes in Graphic Design
This book explores the possibilities and applications of two-tone palettes in graphic design through three sections that cover different effects and finishes: colour matching, duotone effects and gradation.
The projects included here cover different design categories, from logos, brochures, posters, packaging materials, book covers and exhibition materials to screen designs for corporate websites and promotional microsites. The wide variety of designs reveals the endless possibilities of duotone and the ways in which designers and artists make full use of two bright colours to create dramatic and dynamic compositions.
Two-tone palettes are a huge trend in graphic design, as they allow cost savings, enhance readability and make the most of minimalist designs without overwhelming the eye. These qualities make them perfect for effortlessly creating atmospheres.
