Color Branding & Usage for Websites
Thursday, October 10, 2013 from 7:15 AM to 8:45 AM (CDT)
Business owners: Are you a new business and thinking about a website or are you established and wonder what the colors on your website communicate about your business? Join me as I give a 2 part workshop on Color Branding & Usage for websites. The information can also be applied to logos, newsletters, and graphic driven (HTML) emails.
Workshop will held during BBR Chicago meetings at Ann Sathers 909 Belmont Ave. 7:15 - 8:45 am in the morning. Guests are always welcome and there is no attendance fee; just order from menu and tip generously. Have a 30 second elevator pitch ready and bring plenty of business cards for before and after meeting networking.
Location: 1/2 block East of the Belmont Red/Brownline stop. There is limited parking available in back.
The first part we will as a group work on an exercise that lists common associations we have with certain colors in different contexts.
The second part we will look at existing websites and discuss colors in terms of brand association, color variation, balance & proportions, readability, and general overall feel.
Part one: Oct 3 ~ be prepared to work on a creative exercise
Part two: Oct 10 ~ bring laptops and tablets as we look at existing sites
