I am an undergraduate designer at Purdue University pursuing a dual major in Visual Communications Design and Film and Video Studies. The RGB Color Cube is one of many organizational methods that allows creativity and exploration of color in design. Using this method designers can systematiclly apply colors that complement each other to create a stronger, cohesive design. In this catalog you will find original patterns and color palettes that I created to produce various products.

SHAPE & TYPE The blend of maginta, blue, red and black found on coordinate seven in the RGB Color Cube depicts a beautiful gradiation. For my personal swatch I choose a mix different gradiations of the three main colors then stratigicly created a swatch that systamatically worked well together. Once I was comfortable that I had found a successful solution I applied it to a variation of a pattern I had created. This pattern I thought would look praticularly good on a throw pillow and playing cards.

WEST COAST Coordinate twelve on the RGB Color Cube blends the primary color green, two secondary colors cyan and yellow, and white to form a bright and radiant color gradiation. Using this palette I choose 14 our of 36 colors create a personalized swatch. Using this swatch I applied a variation of it to the pattern I had created. After finding a succesful color variation I then applied the pattern to a tie. The colors work well together complementing both warm and cool colors.

The RGB Color Cube presents unlimited color combination possibilities. One that I found praticularly difficult was coordinate twenty one which is a diagonal swatch that shows the blend of cyan and green to maginta and red. The blend gradiation is very beautiful; however, the colors contrast so much that it became hard to find a successful personal swatch. Once I found one that worked I applied it to my pattern and then to an Iphone case.
