{Color} Scheme On: Campbell Edition

I love the work of Joseph Campbell. He was an author, a university professor and a world-renowned expert in myths and mythology. He wrote about the universal "myths" - this is the real sense of that word, meaning foundational stories - that guide each of our lives. 

His insights link ancient and modern myth, religious and spiritual ideas, and the choices we make about our own lives every day.  

I recommend if you get the chance to listen to his series of interviews with Bill Moyers called The Power of Myth. This is my favorite way to learn his stuff, because while it's full of meat and insight, his conversations with Mr. Moyers are obviously extemporaneous and casual. The full Audible book is here, and there are excerpts and transcripts here. There is also a TV show called Mythos on Amazon where you can purchase individual interviews.

Ok, enough there - go find some Joseph Campbell! - and now on to our Color Scheme, the Campbell Edition. Here is the color scheme, and you can find the download with the Adobe Color Swatch file below:

Scheme On, Episode 1

I love color schemes! First of all, I just love colors in general. Secondly, I love seeing new ways to put different colors together. I was asking myself what I could do that would make color scheming even more fun and useful and amazing than it already is. :)

In this tutorial-slash-episode-one, I'll show you a great new color scheme, plus an inspirational quote of some kind (see below), and PLUS, the Adobe color swatch file with these exact colors in it! No more sampling out and hoping for the best - you can load these in whenever you need to, and you'll have them forever.

First up, the scheme itself. Like so:


So there's the scheme, and it's time to download the swatch file!  Just click on the button above. This file will come in as a .zip file, and when you unzip it, you'll find both the color scheme preview and file, which is the Adobe color swatch file extension. Once you have that, you're ready to load it in to Photoshop! See the video below!

I recommend that you keep both the swatch preview as well as the swatch itself in the same folder - just dump them all in the same one - so you can have an idea of what the colors are in that particular swatch when you're loading them. Have fun, and scheme on!
