It’s important to consider color theory when creating a new visual interface. It affects users on a psychological level, and can influence how they perceive an application or website or any online presence.
Before color theory we must know a Color wheel.
It is a color circle or a circular diagram used to represent colors. It shows the relationship between primary colors, secondary colors, and tertiary colors.
When two complementary colors are placed beside each other, they create the strongest contrast for those two colors. This is because the different intensities of light and color create a grayscale when combined or mixed together.
A complementary color is one which creates such grayscale when placed next to its opposite color. When placing complementary colors next to each other, the viewer will perceive them as electrically charged opposites — even if the actual pigment itself does not contain anything that would make it look like an opposite color.
Split Complementary Colors
Split-complementary color schemes use two secondary colors and one base color. It is a colorful and pleasing scheme that is versatile enough to use in almost any decorating situation.
When we increase the angle of above figure or make a triangle we’ll have 3 colors which is triad or triadic color scheme.
If you love the simplicity of a color wheel, but want to feel fresh and current, a triadic color scheme is right up your alley. It’s been around for centuries in many cultures, particularly India and Japan.
Double complementary Color
If you need more colors a double complementary color scheme is used.
It is a simple and versatile way to create a balanced color palette. Complementary colors are paired with two hues that are adjacent to each other on the color wheel. This creates four hues in an overall palette of colors that are adjacent but opposite.
The Analogous color scheme is appealing because it creates a balanced, harmonious look—a warm atmosphere that feels safe. The colors are related and interact well with one another. Because analogous colors are next to each other on the color wheel, this scheme is easy to create for artists and non-artists alike.
They are smooth and can find in nature.
Mono Chromatic Colors
Monochromatic color schemes are derived from a single base hue and extended using its shades, tones and tints. Tints are achieved by adding white, shades by adding black, and tones by adding grey.
Variant tint and shades
A tint is when a color is mixed with white to make it lighter. For example, adding white to a purple or brown paint to create a light purple or light brown. There are also tints of grey, green and pink that you can use.
