that is just gorgeous sylvia.
Just to address some color issues, it is true that there is
plenty of research regarding the psychological effects of color and many cultural meanings implied by its
use. From my experience, a graphic designer will take a more
intuitive approach to color selection. One thing is true, color
is a very subjective topic, and different people prefer different
ones. I tend to consider the "visual effect" of how different
colors work together as a key factor when choosing between this color
For the initial designs I chose a "monochromatic"
approach, which is generally using only one color with variations of
light and dark. The revised design I just posted to kates
comments above, now uses a little "complimentary contrast" which as you can tell is a more intense.
I declared orange the "color of champions" for reasons which now escape me, but the fact is that it really sings when surrounded by a bunch of blue! (It's "compliment" or opposite in the color wheel)
