Color is a powerful tool in design. It can create a mood, set an emotional tone, and communicate your brand's personality.

It's one of the most important considerations when starting a design project because colors have such an impact on how people perceive your company and its products or services.

Monochromatic: One color and its variations, such as different shades of the same color.

Monochromatic color schemes are a popular choice for website design and interior design. A monochromatic color scheme features several variations of a single hue. For example, consider the three colors below:

Cyan: hex code #2ecc71

* Monochromatic color schemes are often used in website design and interior design because they’re easy on the eye.

For example, consider the three colors below: Cyan: hex code #2ecc71 Spring Green: hex code #4aed08 Teal Blue: hex code #0095b7 These three colors are all different shades of blue. While monochromatic color schemes can be used to create a calming effect, they should be used with

Analogous: Colors that are adjacent to each other on the color wheel.

The most common color scheme you'll see is analogous. Analogous colors are adjacent to each other on the color wheel, like red and orange or blue and violet. In order to create a harmonious look, try to pick colors that are in the same family meaning they have similar characteristics (such as warm or cool).

It's also important that your analogous pairing be equidistant from each other on the color wheel; this means if one is a primary color (red, yellow and blue), then your other two should also be primaries.

Complementary: Two colors that are directly across from each other on the color wheel.

Complementary colors are directly across from each other on the color wheel. They are the most contrasting of all color schemes and can be used for a variety of purposes, such as an accent or background color.

Complementary: The same thing as above, but with a different name.

Analogous: Two or more colors that are next to each other on the color wheel.

Triad: Three equidistant hues that are either complementary or analogous in scheme.

Split-Complementary: One base color and two colors on either side of its complement.

This color scheme is one of the oldest in the world. It’s also a variation of the complementary color scheme, which uses two colors that are adjacent to each other on the color wheel and one color that is directly across from those pairs.

In this case, we have a base color (red) and then two colors on either side of its complement (blue-purple and yellow-orange).

Split complements have a lot going for them: they’re highly vibrant yet not too jarring or stressful to look at for long periods of time, which makes them great contenders for logos or websites with lots of text!

Triad: Three colors equidistant from each other on the wheel, forming an equilateral triangle.

A triad is made up of three colors equidistant from each other on the color wheel. This means that they are all in an equal distance from one another, forming an equilateral triangle. Triads are considered to be a balanced scheme because it's not too bright and not too dull.

A triad can be formed by combining two complementary colors and a neutral color or just by using three complimentary colors in equal amounts (like yellow + red + blue).

Tetradic (Double Complementary): Two sets of complementary colors.

Tetradic color scheme is a scheme that contains four colors. It's basically two complementary color schemes used together. One set of complementary colors are the base colors and the other set is their complements.

With this arrangement, all hues will appear in contrast to one another, yet also harmonious because they're evenly divided into four sections.

This color scheme can be used in website design to create a pleasing appearance for your visitors, especially if you're using bright and vibrant shades as it tends to draw attention towards itself -- but if you want something more subtle then you can use pastels instead!

Square: Four colors arranged in a square on the wheel, forming a rectangle between the pairs of opposites.

A square is a collection of four colors arranged in a rectangle on the color wheel. The four colors are equidistant from each other, forming a rectangle that sits between the pairs of opposites (red vs green, orange vs blue). The length of this rectangle should be equal to that of the wheel itself.

A square consists mostly of two sets of complements: red/green and orange/blue. These can be used together with another complement (yellow) or with another pair-of-opposites color (violet).

Color schemes are often used in website design

Color schemes are often used in website design, graphic design, marketing, interior design and fashion.

Color scheme is a combination of colors that work well together. It means that the same color can have different meanings depending on how it's used with other colors. Color schemes can be used in many places like art and fashion too!
