Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video Using global colors to your advantage, part of Illustrator for Web Design: Aesthetics.
- There's pretty much only one thing…that's a certainty when you're doing…client work and it comes to web design,…and that is that the client is always…going to change their mind.…And so, in that same mindset, you need to be aware…that you're going to have to change some stuff…on the fly when you're creating colors…inside of your Illustrator documents.…The best way to do that, of course,…is to create something called a Global Color,…so that when you change a color,…it changes every object that has that color…applied to it, instantly,…without you having to select something, change the color,…select something, change the color.…
You just want to be able to select the color,…change the color, and everything update.…So that's what I'm going to show you how to do…inside of this movie.…However, before we get started,…if you were unable to find the Corporate Blues Color Theme…using Adobe Color in the previous movie,…I've actually included it as an ASE file…in your exercise files.…You can locate that by clicking on this little book icon…
