One of the first things you should do if you want to step up your creative game is to get confident about choosing color combinations. Knowing what colors go together is a skill in itself and it can have a positive impact on all areas of your life.
This twosome is successful because neither are vying for attention. They are close in terms of saturation – or in non-designer jargon – the shade intensity. If either, or both, were brighter they would clash.
The combination works because it creates ultimate balance. Black is strong and dominant and white is peaceful and pure. From a tonal point of view they are polar opposites, but it is this contrast that makes black and white so effective together.
As such, Amazon found it suitable for the joy of the shopping fever.
Using pale shades of sky blue and earthy brown is a sure way to induce a state of calm and relaxation. No wonder Airbnb used this palette for their display ads. Their promise could be summed up to: this is the kind of life and experiences you’d enjoy when booking accommodation through our platform, one-on-one hosting, friendship, and above all the quietness of an isolated shore, far from the madding crowd of the city.
A Triad is a combination of 3 colors that are equidistant from each other on the color circle. It produces a high contrast effect while preserving ’harmony.’ Such a composition looks vibrant even when you use pale and unsaturated colors.
Say you want to inspire your audience – or make them feel happy or calm. Using the right color combinations can reinforce your intentions. Brands need to think about color combinations across many areas like logos, websites, marketing materials, merchandise, and social media. It’s not enough to work with just one color, the real magic lies in knowing what 2 or 3 colors go together and being able to pick compelling color combinations. Ensure brand consistency by documenting which colors and combinations people should use. Document commonly used colors and hex codes in an internal wiki.
