Help! Color Palette Confusion!

  • Anonymous


    First off, thank you Syahir for your mad design skills! The fact that Graphene starts with something like 14 areas that use differing shades of blue makes it l66k amazing! However, the fact that there are something like 14 areas that use differing shades of blue make it hard to develop a perfect compliment in other colors.

    I know it’s not an exact science (i.e. % of R, G, B) but has anyone developed a way to replace all shades of blue with, perhaps, reds, yellows, or greens?

    I know there are many color utilities out there like but nothing seems to give me the right number of replacements that look as good as the original set of blue based values.

    This typical (read: creatively challenged :o) Geek would appreciate help from any and all Creatives out there.

    The colour palettes only give you a guide on what colour combinations may work well together, they don’t give you the exact colours or shades of colours to use.

    A good rule of thumb is to just follow the theme’s colour scheme for shades, e.g. replace darker blues with darker (or more intense) reds, and replace lighter blues with lighter reds. Keeping it like this will give an effect of “switching out” colours.



    Dear Syahir,

    I thank you for your fast reply and your advice. Keep up the good work and I honestly hope to donate for each site I am using Graphene as soon as I am able :o)
