​Understanding the Difference: CMYK vs. RGB

Now that you know how to choose between CMYK and RGB colour modes in Sesimi, let's explore why this distinction is crucial in the world of marketing and advertising.

RGB (Red, Green, Blue):

  • Ideal for digital displays such as computer monitors, televisions, and mobile devices.

  • Achieves a wide spectrum of colours by combining varying intensities of red, green, and blue light.

  • Best suited for web graphics, social media content, and digital advertisements.

CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black):

  • Standard colour mode for print materials, ensuring accurate colour reproduction across various printing processes.

  • Creates colours by subtracting varying percentages of cyan, magenta, yellow, and black ink from a white background.

  • Essential for designs destined for brochures, flyers, business cards, and other printed materials.

By understanding the differences between CMYK and RGB colour modes, you can ensure your designs are optimised for their intended medium, whether it's the vibrant glow of a digital screen or the crisp precision of a printed page.
