Using Color in FileMaker

Alexis Allen posted a must read article on the use of colors in FileMaker, and covers in quite some detail:

The fourth in a series on the basics of visual design for FileMaker. Colour is one of the most important elements of a design. Since vision is our most dominant sense, colour has an enormous impact on the feeling of a design. But it’s easy to overdo colour, so use it wisely! Here are some important facts about designing with colour.

Subjects covered include:

  • Perception
  • Purpose
  • Colour Models
  • Sampling
  • Colour Theory
  • Color Sampling
  • and much more
