Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Establishing a base radial gradient, part of Creating and Adapting a Logo.
- In this movie, we'll establish a base gradient.…And that's gonna be this blue gradient inside the planet…that grows darker toward the top,…thereby indicating the transition from sky to space.…So I'll go ahead and switch over to our document so far.…And the first thing we need to do is,…verify that we're working in a color-managed space.…So drop down to this right-pointing arrowhead…next to the word "Selection."…At least that's what it says by default.…And then click on it, choose Show,…and choose Document Color Profile.…And you should now see Adobe RGB (1998).…
If you don't, if you see SRGB,…then go up to the Edit menu, choose Color Settings,…and then change your RGB Working Space setting…to Adobe RBG and click Okay.…In my case, everything's fine,…so I'll just go ahead and cancel out.…All right. The next thing we wanna do is,…get a bead on that Pantone 285 blue…so that we can more or less match it.…And to do that, just go ahead and double-click…on that swatch there inside the Swatches panel.…The color mode will be set to Book Color by default.…
