While you may think your brand colors are blue and gold—it is not always as simple as that. In actuality, the naming of colors can be very technical, and understanding this will help ensure greater consistency in your materials across different media platforms—a must for today’s increasingly integrated digital and offline brand experiences. The following are some of the four most common color models to understand (and when to use them!)

AdvicePeriod lives by the quote “If culture doesn’t fit, nothing else matters”, you should too.
