I recently made a web page for school and originally based the overall color off of the starting image, which was a deep navy-grayish blue!. I continued to base the web page in matching tones of gray/slate blue, making sure it was visible and matching!. However, my teacher informed me that "gray on gray is bad aesthetics," and subtracted points!. What do you say!?
Your teacher is an elitist *ss!.
Not to say that a monchomatic layout can't be boring, but not JUST because it is monochromatic!.
I wonder if your teacher thinks that black and white photography, duotones or sepia tones are "bad aesthetics!."Www@QuestionHome@Com
Uh I think it looks cool!.!. how ambitious is this class!? If it's like some kind of crazy college level class and you're majoring in like!.!. web design!.!.!. then I guess I can understand your teacher wanting you to be more creative and artistic than that!?!? But seriously, I think it's cool!. There's such thing as something being 'gray on gray' and looking cool I only wish I could think of a fine art example thought ahaha!.!.
