What is CMYK and Pantone

CMYK stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Key (black). The Pantone Matching System is the company's most well-known product (PMS).
PMS is a specialised colour space utilised by designers in various sectors to produce high-quality offset printing. PMS is primarily utilised in the printing industry, although it also produces coloured paint, textiles, and polymers. The CMYK colour model is used in the printing business.

The RGB colour code is made up of the colours RED, BLUE, and GREEN. Different colours are created by combining these four base colours, just like RGB. Each colour is represented by a percentage ranging from 0% (no colour) to 100% (every colour) (all of the colors). The surface/background is the initial distinction. It's white with CMYK (e.g. the paper). This is why the "Key" colour is required to create a stunning, deep black.

One big piece to the puzzle is color theory. Beyond the understanding of color theory you also need to understand how to choose the right colors for your palette.

Understanding color is the first step to applying it successfully in your design. Color theory is a complex subject that analyzes how different hues/shades interact with one another. However a few basic tips can lead to finding that perfect palette.

  • Analogous palettes use colors that are close to each other on the color wheel.
  • Complementary palettes are created with colors that sit opposite each other on the wheel in order to offer a sense of balance.
  • The triadic method consists of three main colors equally spaced on the wheel, which makes for a diverse palette.
