60-30-10 rule may help you harmonize your color scheme and make a well-balanced interface design.
The idea is simple. When you choose a new color palette, 60% of the palette is dedicated to the dominant color — usually, we call it neutral. Secondary color, or complementary, makes up 30% of the palette, and a third color, accent one, is used for the remaining 10% of the design.
Tips & Tricks
- Grayscale first. You can lose a lot of time by applying colors too early. Focus on spacing and laying out elements before
- Contrast the text. Make it readable by contrasting with the background
- Don’t use pure gray or black. It is more natural to add some saturation. We rarely see pure gray colors in real life
- Use color generators. They will simplify your search for a well-balanced color palette. We listed the most popular for you below
