Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Choose a color palette, part of Designing a Portfolio Website with Muse.
- [Instructor] Your online portfolio is an extension…of your brand and an important component of your brand.…It is your color palette.…So we want to be able to create a color palette…that we can use consistently and that we can access easily…and that we can share across applications.…So I'm going to create a color palette in Illustrator,…save it to a CC or Creative Cloud library,…and that way, we can share it in Photoshop,…in InDesign, and importantly, in Muse.…
So this is all part of the strategy…of getting all of our ducks in a row…before we actually start in earnest designing the website.…These setup steps are really going to…help things go a lot smoother.…Now, I'm going to start with my logo, 'cause this is one thing…that I have from which I can derive the other colors.…In Illustrator, I'll select the artwork.…I'll come to the Swatches panel, click on New Color Group,…and create a color group from the Selected Artwork.…
So there's my color group right there.…I'm not going to tear off the Swatches panel.…And come to the Color Guide panel.…
