1. Know the project and the client
You should keep in mind to choose colors that are suitable for your project. In addition to the colors given by your client, you have to make a great palette by adding other shades and tones. Different color combinations have different meanings. For example, green and red for Christmas and blue and red for patriotism.
2. Color theory review
Reviewing color basics is must before choosing and creating a palette. You can find various color schemes on the color wheel such as analogous, monochromatic, triadic, complementary, double-complementary, and split-complementary. Traditional color schemes can help you in determining the right color combination.
3. Try out custom color schemes
You can customize by making your own color palette from the traditional scheme where you needn’t follow the formal rules. Chroma, value, and saturation of colors are important.
4. As basis, use monochromatic color scheme
