This week, we’re giving you the perfect excuse to embrace your inner child. Think back to the activities and themes that brought you joy as a kid and bring them to life in your design. Get back to the basics by using children’s art supplies or utilize modern techniques to elevate your memories.
Monochrome Moments | Entries due by July 5, 2022
Monochrome design is all about utilizing tints, shades, and tones of a single color.
First, let’s dive into a color theory refresher… a tint is a lighter version of a color (base color + white), a shade is a darker version of a color (base color + black), and a tone refers to the saturation (base color + gray). Test your design skills in this challenge by using tints, shades and tones of your chosen base color to create a monochromatic design.
How will you use shape and texture to create interest while being limited to just one color?
