Colors have a direct effect on the viewer’s mood. Choosing the right color for your logo or t-shirt design is critical to the success of the design. What message are you trying to convey to your consumers? Check out our color chart reference guide to choose the color that suits your design best!
Complimentary Color Scheme:
Colors located directly opposite each other on the color wheel are called complimentary. Complimentary colors typically convey a bold statement. T-shirt designs with complimentary colors really make your logo pop!
Analogous Color Scheme:
Analogous colors are adjacent to one another on the color wheel. For example, green and yellow color combinations are analogous. This scheme works great for creating harmony and unity in your design.
Triadic Color Scheme:
Triadic colors are equally spaced across the color wheel and come in groups of three. Your primary colors-red, yellow, and blue-are the prime example of a triadic scheme. These colors often convey variety.
Split Complimentary Color Scheme:
Split complimentary colors incorporate a color and the two colors next to its compliment across the color wheel. For instance, if you choose yellow, then blue and purple are the adjacent colors across the wheel.
Monochromatic Color Scheme:
Colors of the same hue are called monochromatic. Monochromatic colors work great for subtle variation. Place your light blue logo on a navy shirt to give you a tonal effect that is sure to wow your consumers.
