Herramientas y consejos para un buen uso del color El uso del blanco y negro para un diseño, que sea para pantalla, proyectado o impreso, suele ser una apuesta bastante segura; integrar colores, algo más arriesgado. Más allá de un tema de gustos, saber elegir correctamente una paleta de tonos y que su combinación sea acertada resulta ser más complicado de lo que podría parecer a primera vista. Tanto si trabajemos en RGB (colores de luz) o CMYK (colores de tinta), hay que tener en cuenta que existen mezclas a evitar: cuando los colores son opuestos y tienen el mismo tono, se crea un efecto de vibración (como el uso de letras rojas sobre fondo verde, o magenta sobre amarillo o bien azul y naranja) que dificulta altamente la lectura de contenidos, así como usar tonalidades poco contrastadas (por ejemplo, el amarillo sobre blanco es ilegible). Si tenemos que elegir una paleta de colores, nos podemos remitirnos a herramientas online gratuitas que serán de gran ayuda. Una de las más potente y completa que puedo aconsejar es el Adobe Kuler.

[ du D.chet à l'ob.G ) Wall of Films! | Over 400 Social Change Documentaries on 1 Page Just imagine what could become possible if an entire city had seen just one of the documentaries above. Just imagine what would be possible if everyone in the country was aware of how unhealthy the mainstream media was for our future and started turning to independent sources in droves. Creating a better world really does start with an informed citizenry, and there's lots of subject matter to cover. From all the documentaries above, it's evident that our society needs a new story to belong to. The old story of empire and dominion over the earth has to be looked at in the full light of day - all of our ambient cultural stories and values that we take for granted and which remain invisible must become visible. But most of all, we need to see the promise of the alternatives - we need to be able to imagine new exciting ways that people could live, better than anything that the old paradigm could ever dream of providing. So take this library of films and use it.
