Below are the basic tools for creating correct color schemes:
A complementary color
This scheme allows to determine the opposite color. Scheme of complementary colors according to the principle «opposites attract».
Analog color formula, which is used by many companies involves the combination in the palette of three colors that are close on the color wheel.
