Why color schemes are essential

It takes time to create the perfect color palette. The importance of color combos is more important than you think. Of course every color evokes some feelings, but that’s not all. Certain types of colors may put in the spotlight event the simplest and boring illustration.

An essential unwritten rule for designers is not to have favourite colour combinations. Why? Well, it makes sense when you see it this way. The reason behind this is that designers tend to use over and over again the same mixes that they’re used to. Sometimes, they don’t explore more and go into the safe zone.

For some designers, people’s opinion are more important that the artwork itself. The fear that a particular mix may ruin their design style or people would not like it’s the designer’s recipe for disaster.
