Never use rich black at reduced opacity

This is so crucial. You might have a rich black panel in your design, then you belatedly decide you want to make it grey instead. You’ll be tempted to take the easy option and simply reduce the opacity of the rich black colour. NEVER do this.

As soon as the opacity is reduced, the black ink is no longer solid. And the other inks will show through it more easily, and instead of grey you’ll have goodness-knows-what. Some kind of unpleasant tinted surprise.

Any shade of grey must be made up of black ink only. I can’t stress this enough.

A good example is a drop shadow. I’ll be discussing drop shadows later in class.
