Adilene Boyer January 1, 2020 Color Combination
Complementary (also known as supplementary or contrasting) colors are colors that sit opposite of each other on the color circle. The combination of such colors creates a vivid and energizing effect, especially at maximum saturation.
Black is also the color of nobility and elegance. But Adobe doesn’t play the game of the elites here. The trick is that Adobe is playing with concepts, by playing with colors and fonts: young generation (red, blue), education (dark blue), skills, the aspiration to high-class (black).
Technically the tones should conflict, but in reality the subdued rich navy offers a solid base for the vivacious mint. The darker hue acts as an anchor without being stark. This palette would be wonderful when worn together or as a living room or bedroom color scheme. The colors also work particularly well when used in typography.
This twosome is successful because neither are vying for attention. They are close in terms of saturation – or in non-designer jargon – the shade intensity. If either, or both, were brighter they would clash.
Further, they used white and black to balance this sweet indulgence and twist the ad a bit into a more serious atmosphere. White balances the feast while black introduces an element of premium treats.
A variation on the complementary color combination. In this case, you take one primary color and two complementary ones (the colors that lie on both sides of the primary color’s antipodes on the color circle). The effect created by such a scheme is just as contrasting as the one before but slightly less intense. If you feel confident about using the complementary scheme, use the split complementary instead.
