CMYK is preferable for print products, whereas RGB is better for websites and digital communications. RGB is the primary colour in most design fields, whereas CMYK is a subtractive colour model. Understanding the differences between RGB and CMYK is crucial for good graphic design.

For quick reference, the RGB colour mode is best for digital work, whereas the CMYK colour option is best for print items.

In simple terms, RGB is a colour standard for usage on televisions and digital displays. Light is used to create RGB colours. A colour format for printing is CMYK. Ink is used to create CMYK colours.

When you create a new document in Illustrator, you have the option of using document presets such as Web (RGB) or Print (CMYK). You can always modify the colour space of your document or the colour space of individual elements in the future (and preview Proof Colors).

In graphic design, both RGB and CMYK are colour mixing modes. RGB is used on monitors, while CMYK is used on printers. This indicates that RGB is the best colour mode for digital designs and CMYK is the best colour style for print products.
