Spot Color

On the cover of Vibe magazine the designer used a robin’s egg blue shade as a spot color. The the background and a few parts of the text pop against the black and white photograph because they are done in this color.


This advertisement is a good example of a yellow duotone over a black and white photograph.

Analogous colors

On this cover of Lucky the analogous colors pink, peach, and orange are used. The soft colors compliment each other and are especially effective for a spring issue.

Complimentary colors

This issue of O magazine uses orange and blue on the cover. They are bright shades of both colors making them complimentary without conflicting.
