Colour Behaviour Study of Japan / True Black on Real Life Physical Paper & on Computer Displays or Screens

I am hereby documenting few of my thoughts about black colour behaviour on Physical Paper & on Computer Display or on Screen.

 
I was from BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts) – Applied Art background so we had subjects like Illustration, Calligraphy, Typography, Print Media Design, Logo & Symbol Design, Branding & Identity Design.

 
We use to design our assignments using Japan Black ink which is vary dark in contrast & which creates high contrast reach feeling of black colour tone on white paper.

 
So when we print our designs done in Adobe Illustrator or CorelDraw we use to fill the design with (CMYK) Cyan: 100%, Magenta: 100%, Yellow: 100%, K(Black): 100% than using only K: 100%. This CMYK values use to create high contrast Japan Black ink fill on White Paper.

The primary difference between a filter and an effect is that a filter permanently modifies an object or layer, but an effect and its properties can be changed or removed at any time.

 
Once you apply an effect to an object, the effect appears in the Appearance panel. From the Appearance panel, you can edit the effect, move it, duplicate it, delete it, or save it as part of a graphic style. When you use an effect, you must expand the object before you can access the new points.
