Color Models: CMYK
The CMYK color model is used in printing. Although computer monitors display color in RGB, final printed pieces will be in CMYK, and so it is important to understand this model and the printing process.
Color Models: RGB
The RGB model is so important to graphic design because it is used in computer monitors. Therefore, when designing websites and other on-screen projects, the RGB model is used because the final product is viewed on a computer display.

The HSV color space is important to look at because it describes color based on three properties: Hue, Saturation and Value. As you edit these values, the full spectrum of colors can be created.
