In Search of a Double Rainbow: Defining Color Categories

5 Nov

Spot Color:

This page from Good Housekeeping presents an excellent example of spot color. The orange from the burning candle was used in the headline and deckhead of the article to draw attention to it.

Duotone:

This shot of Big Ben looks attractive and historical because of the brown tone that was added to the photo.

Analogous:

This festive cover of Real Simple Magazine displays analogous colors at their finest. The soft yellow gourds, light orange pumpkins and orange background look wonderful together.

Complimentary:

The bright orange text and images compliment the vibrant blue on this magazine’s front cover.

Triadic Harmonies:

The light blue, red and yellow in this modern room successfully accomplish triadic harmony.
