Color communicates so effectively so, it’s truly important to make sure that it says the right thing.
Choosing the colors that blend well together and draw the attention to your design is truly important. Doing so is like picking out the clothes that you’ll wear on special occasions and other significant events. If the overall colors clash and are too distracting, your design will definitely become not compelling but annoying instead. It’s actually all about finding the right color combinations!
With the various ways to come up with good designs these days, color combination has opened up to new levels. I know that you’re aware of the fact that mixing odd colors is very much okay but you always have to make sure that it’s actually done in just the right touch. If you’ll mix safe colors only in your design, it may sometimes end up looking ordinary too fast. Combining bright colors, on the other hand, must not appear like they’re competing with each other because it’ll just finish up looking too busy and very disturbing.
When you consider using bright colors in your designs, try to limit it to only one dominating bright color. Then, keep the rest of your color scheme in a more neutral one. When you have a bright layout design, you must select a more conservative shade for your text so that the text will not compete with the design. With this, the text will surely look very pleasant. There are times when you might want to inspire “shock and awe” in your audience. In such cases, colors that never look good together and seem uncomfortable with each other can be the perfect bet for your designs. But when it comes to unique ideas and complex interactions, the right color combinations are truly valuable weapons to be used in your designs.
Generally, you have to make sure that the color combinations for your designs fit the intended content and the expectations of the viewers. You must also think carefully about why you’re using a given color or selection of colors and to whom that color is being delivered. Never use colors that don’t add to or support the information being presented. Always keep in mind that how you combine colors has a significant impact on how it will be received by your audiences. Try to be consistent throughout the design with your color combination choices. Without forethought, your designs might only weaken the message you want to convey or worse, make it ineffective altogether.
