I've been a hobbyist "designer" for many years but I never bothered to learn any foundational color theory. This tutorial filled in a couple gaps and I picked up a few pointers that will definitely stick with me. I really enjoyed Mark's presentation style as well.

Amazing course! If you've never had schooling in graphic design, like me, this course will be a fantastic adventure, albeit too short.
I want more!!!

I knew a lot of the color theory already, but it was still a great refresh. The tools presented are all new to me and I already don't know how I lived without them.
