The colors are selected from the color wheel will be divided into multiple levels of color can be combined. To choose the best color combination for design (called dotted cardboard cardboard), depending on the job you are doing.
Does it convey what you want to express? Or you can choose the color for you, or else hang like that. That is a difficult question for any designer or client nao.Ho need to put personal interests and the related interface to decide on the color. The experience and knowledge will help you to create color combinations in accordance with the objectives of the project. This is the theory will help you design the right product ideas.
I'm going to show different ways of showing some great combinations. But before I start, will not be useful if the palette is the potential client has given you, or in the design documents.
I always show two color schemes, in two different ways in the colors of the color wheel. On the palette you can see, I have divided the color associated together in each level, from left to right. It is like you are doing genealogy for color, this took the other colors in the palette associated. There are many ways you can make as squares, circles, lines.
Depending on you, but this is an important method to demonstrate the relevance of the colors.
This is consistent with the type of color 3 color coordination. This is not the way that you think about the color wheel, so here I only pick three colors coordinate with the following steps:
1. Color additives: They seem weak, or color additives. It contrasts and highlights the main color.
2. The main color, or also known as the dominant colors. It is the dominant color of the design. It is based on the color you need to choose the appropriate color and meaningful support for design.
3. Color emphasize or highlight color: Color emphasis will have two meanings.
a. Or is complementary to the color additives or colors.
b. Or it would emphasize, attracting the attention of the viewer, because it is colored with bright primary colors.
Dynamic / impress.
How impressive combination will create a very strong sense of warmth, excitement, enthusiasm and emotion. The natural color of light, often combining colors on the color wheel, the city with the main color, color additives and color additives 3rd For many, this will be the color scheme is feeling noise, glare brilliant and radiant energy. It's youthful combinations. Lots of color shades called "natural" - color, but it has many more shades with the same color, earlier we used to use for travel, or industrial.
Color combinations courteous.
The elegant tone with a lot of white in tone .. Here is an example with blue and combined with lavender (lavender) as the main color. The result of this combination creates balance and elegance. Tong blue, green and violet light on the color wheel make up looks peaceful. The emphasis has always used the same tone and color coordinated shades darker. The colors are commonly used in the industry, creating visual effects gentle female dynamic.
The light color scheme similar to the color courteous but often used based on the color containing large white - colored. The difference is that this slight color combination of warm and cool colors. This combination will fit youth, innocence and excitement.
With a few examples above, hope to help you understand more about how to select colors for your design.
