January Etsy Finds

Marsala is actually pretty, and doesn’t hurt the eyes. Also, January tends to be the coldest month here in Austin, and I am already tired of it. I’m dreaming of tropical beaches and 80-degree weather. The second collection down below has colors that remind me of that.

Decoding Design: Color Lingo

CMYK vs. RGB vs. PMS

If you’ve ever had an in-depth conversation with a designer, you’ve probably been bombarded by letter combinations like CMYK, RGB, DPI, and odd terms like bleeds and spot colors. We designers throw these terms around all the time, maybe without realizing that not everyone lives and breathes these things like we do. I’m going to start with decoding just a few basics in this post, namely the acronyms pertaining to color profiles. They are: CMYK, RGB, and PMS.
