When I build a spot gradient in Indesign or Illustrator I'm not getting exactly what I want. What I want: a very dark blue (say, PMS 2756) to black - with the blue getting darker and darker toward black. What I get on screen and on proof: the blue becoming a lighter gray, then the gray darkening toward black. I assume the solution rests in using a blue > nothing gradient in a layer above a blue > black and messing with overprinting / transparency but I'm unsure how to proceed. Any advice?
Color Theory and Beyond: Recommend me a good book or references on color theory, including optical effects and concerns beyond just basics like complimentary, analagous, etc? (Expanding on this thread.) [more inside]
