    Good contrast in your design goes hand-in-hand with your color selections. Contrast is the value difference between the colors on your design. Value is how bright or dark the color (ink) is. Ever see a blank white canvas and as a joke someone says: “Hey – it’s a white cow in a snow storm!” This is an example of no contrast. White on white is no contrast – you can’t see anything.

    Chevreul's "Principles of Color Harmony and Contrast"

    Chevreul's "Principles of Color Harmony and Contrast"

    The Principles of Harmony and Contrast of Colors by Michel-Eugène Chevreul – This classic "color theory" text, published in 1839 as The Law of Simultaneous Color Contrast (translated into English in 1854), is an artistic milestone, one of the first systematic studies of color perception and a compendium of color design principles that many 19th century French painters from Delacroix to Matisse attempted to apply in their art.

    Contrast and Meaning

    Contrast and Meaning

Examples like these are useful because everyone understands the extremes they imply, but while there are extremes, there are no absolutes. The values are merely relative.

    High contrast of tones, regardless of color help to create a more dramatic piece. To achieve high contrast, think of your basic value scale from white to black. This scale is made up of many different tones. To achieve high contrast in your drawing, you will need to skip one or two values between each tone used. You may decide to use predominantly dark tones, adding white or very light grays for highlights and vice versa.

    Contrast - Basic Principles of Design - When applying contrast to Web designs, think beyond color. Color contrast can easily be overdone. But by using more subtle differences in contrastin font sizes, layout shapes, images, and text styles (like lists versus long blocks of prose) you can take advantage of contrast without blasting your readers with a loud contrasting color scheme.

    Drawing Tip: Using Contrast to Pop or Not : Using Contrast to Your Advantage - Contrast is the difference between light and dark in a picture. Black-and-white is high contrast, while similar shades of gray - or white against a very light gray, or black and a very dark gray - are low contrast. Of course, there is a scale of grays somewhere between the two extremes - a mid-gray against white, or a black against a mid gray - in the middle.

    Using the Design Principle of Contrast in Digital Creations - Contrast is a design principle that relates to the difference between two objects. For example, the text size for a heading compared to the text size for the sub-heading. Other examples would include the difference between two fonts, the sizes of two bodies of text (not the font size, but the actual size of the whole body), the sizes of pictures on the same page or section and even the size of elements compared to the size of the physical project.
