Every year Pantone puts out a new color of the year and the Articulate challenge of the week is to create an e-learning piece based on that color. This year it was Ultra Violet. The folks at Pantone were kind enough to also provide a list of color swatches (groups of colors that look good together) and so I selected their Desert Sunset swatch.
Being that I’ve been creating a lot of e-learning modules for the aeronautics industry, I created a menu for an imaginary course on aircraft fueling and maintenance.
Shapes and Fills
I used one of Articulate Storyline’s built-in shapes filling each with one of the colors from the swatch and making them all semi-transparent. Then I copied each of the shapes and for the duplicates, replaced the color fill with a picture. Then I simply layered the semi-transparent shape over the picture for each.
