I love using colour. But while I have been coming up with concepts and ideas for this poster, I was finding it difficult to think of good colours to use and I still have not grasped the logic behind the use of colour. So I decided to research how to influence effectively with colour.
The research that I found suggested these great tips that are useful to create colour schemes for an infographic:
- Stick to just two main colours and only use four colours overall so it does not make your poster look too busy.
- The two colours you choose as your main colours, make them clear and bold while the other colour should be complementary (subtle and warm).
- Use the subject of your poster to determine what colours you use. For example, if your subject is coffee, you could use different shades of brown.
