New York Times color theory grids, process.

fdn_1111_f09_nytimes_process_003_web

Above: MCAD student’s SunJoo’s work in progress. In this application of
our semester long focus on color, we developed grids from single New York
Times pages with pencil and tracing paper. Some of these have marvelous
architectural qualities in themselves. The students then transfer the plan
to the newsprint and begin applying a color ‘machine,’ beginning with the
three primaries. These are works in progress, and follow on the heels of
last year’s experiments. Those students would surely agree, these are
extremely promising!

these are awesome! these remind me of a project that charlie did in our graphic design class…

he found a great way to apply a system to that grid, and made a great calendar/poster out of it. seems like a great exercise

These look like a lot of fun (and look rather cool)! We never got to do this in my 2d class, you lucky bums.
