How to Apply a Color Palette to Your Design – Tutorial

How do I use a color palette? How many colors should I use? How will I know if my colors look good together? Making a color palette is the first step, but knowing how to use it is something else.

In this video, Creative Director, Greg Gunn, shares a handy color trick known as the 60-30-10 rule. He’ll explain what the rule is and how you can use it to give balance to your color palette. By the end of this video, you will understand how to come up with your own color ratio and give your palette purpose and consistency, wherever it is used.

  8. Thank you for the tutorial. Recently, I have started using an AI-powered photo editing platform named autoRetouch. I am using the trial version. Creating a color palette is very easy on this platform.

  9. someone who is rich in knowledge is never stingy to share… ???

  10. I think it looks like a triadic harmony? 2:50

  11. oh it very good for me. I lost a ton of time about color.

  12. Good night
    Thank you very much I needed it
    My question is how do I apply it to Instagram, I put four squares in the same way and I repeat it always, for example, Instagram has three squares and I repeat the colors in the three above it, and so on … etc
    Or I put each color has a theme, I hope my question is clear

  13. "Let's take a look at why they all look so good together" Well, the poster is aggressive to my eyes, doesn't look good at all, looks like a 10years old drawing and no it doesn't look good and pleasant at all. Anyway final result is bad as your lighting studio setup but i 'll put a thumb up because i learned some good things

  14. I'm so sorry to say this. But I love the topic you are talking about. But that echoing audio is horrible! Makes it hard to listen to your video.

  15. LOL it's funny because the video color grading makes his skin yellow

  16. "That's true, me!" I need to talk like this lol.

  17. I enjoyed this thank you!

  18. how would you do this when using photos? like adding photos when you’ve got a set colour palette. it’s always a challenge for me ;;;; especially if i want to avoid just changing the colours to white + a monochromatic overlay, which isn’t always appropriate

  19. Great video, very informative. The only thing I ask is that you sound treat your recording, as the reverb is distracting – on the talking head clips. Alternatively, use a lav mic.

  20. When in the beginning I didn't see the problem with the color pallet I knew I was never going to get this
