Infographic Day 8: Picking a Cohesive Color Scheme

Today’s essential question: How can I balance similarly saturated colors with neutrals to create a cohesive color scheme?

Look at the infographics below. Each infographic has a few dominant colors of equal saturation or brightness, as well as some neutrals. What purpose do the neutrals serve? What might the dominant colors for your infographic be? Why is it important to conscientiously limit your color palette?

The coolors website and the design seeds website are great resources for picking color schemes.

Today we will:

  • Continue working on our infographic projects
  • Create a new blog post with our progress. Include:
    • a PDF of your project
    • a PNG of your project
    • a few sentences explaining what has been easy and what is still challenging
