How to select colors to a design (Best Practices)


Most of Developer / New Designers related to the software development field are finding a way to select a color scheme to their designs because creating a color scheme is essential to good design.

I need to mentioned that applying a perfect color theme is not the only way to make a good design, you need to think about various things such as Shape, Typography, balance, proximity, alignment, repetition, contrast and space, Content Structure etc.. 🙂

Most of time I personally select the Material Design color palate for a instant modern design or search a nice web on the internet use  and get the colors 🙂  If you want to know the basis of the color theories please read  first

Its better to define color pallet (less than 5 colors is perfect)  before start a design. There are no any theories behind that I still believe using a single color with few shades you can do a fantastic job.

Don’t worry there are 100 of online tools available for your help. I have gathered together some fantastic tools to help you perfect your color choices.
