A great result of the design project begins with color!
To choose the correct colors, you can use the model of the color wheel. Itten's color wheel consists of 12 parts - three main colors: red, yellow, blue, three additional, which are formed by mixing the main: green, purple, orange, and six colors, formed by combining the main with additional.
All colors are split into cold, warm, and neutral: black, white, gray.
The warm colors include red, orange, and yellow - as well as various modifications of these colors.
Use warm colors if you want the design to reflect happiness, activity, and power.
In short about the main warm colors:
- Red is very hot. It is associated with fire, violence, and power. And also with love and passion. Red also means danger. In design, red can be a powerful accent. If you use too much red in the design it can annoy users.
- Orange is a very bright and dynamic color. Some of its variations are associated with ground and autumn. In the design, orange attracts attention but does not serve as red. He often considers more welcoming and friendly and less challenging.
- Yellow is often considered the brightest and most energetic of all warm colors. Dark yellow and gold tones are associated with the old, so they can be used to give the design a search for unity and security.
It is also worth noting that any color can be cold or warm. It all depends on its undertone.
