    A perfect color scheme?

    What color schemes do you usually use when making graphics?

    Hi,

    In my experience it all depends of the project type and the art direction you are going to treat. There is no specific set which is default. In my case, depending on the project i usually draw inspiration trying to mimic the nature (Safe mode) or do something theoretical (Experimenting Mode).
    The key to successful color scheme depends much also on the accent color. Sometimes, say when you use analog color themes, you can disrupt minimally with a complementary color to give some highlight or to disrupt the communication visually.

    You can use:
    Hidden Block (you must be registered and have 5 posts):
    You do not have sufficient rights to see the hidden data contained here.
    Availiable inside photoshop as an extension too. You can also check famous interior designs as inspiration and an design aim. But keep in mind, the project decides what you are going to use.

    I know it's not that clear, but believe me ... I always start confused too :)

    Best,

    White & black, with a small bit of red. Maybe gray or an additional bright accent color.

    It's the same aesthetic I carry into my personal life too.

    It all depends on the type of project you are doing, when you're doing a professional project for a client the palette must suit their brand or their goals. When I'm doing a personal project or designing for leisure, I'm personally really attracted to pastels and kind of easter inspired colors.

    The site I use a lot for color palette design and inspiration is colourlovers.com and of course, adobe has a built in extension that's really great at this as well called kuler. ^^ good luck!
