This is how you create the right color scheme

A color scheme is a choice of colors used in design for a range of media (apps, website, logo, etc).

There are 5 notable types of color schemes.

1. Monochromatic

Uses various tints and shades of the same hue.

2. Analogous

Uses colors located next to each other on the color wheel.

3. Complementary

Uses colors opposite of each other on the color wheel.

4. Split Complementary

Uses one base color and two secondary colors. They form an isosceles triangle on the color wheel.

5. Triadic Complementary

Uses colors that are equally spaced out on the color wheel. They form an equilateral triangle.

60-30-10 Rule Bonus

To create a strong color balance, it's important to have 60% used by our dominant color, 30% by our secondary color, and 10% by our accent color.
