Color is one of the most powerful tools in the designer’s toolkit. It can draw attention, set a mood, influence users’ emotions, perceptions and actions. With the lingering presence of Flat and Material Design, color holds even more prominence in UI design today. Bright colors are equally well suited for both playfully cartoonish designs focussed on entertainment and for the elegantly minimalist styles focussed on business solutions. This versatility makes vibrant colors one of the biggest UI design trends of 2017.
The appeal of the vibrant color trend is that it can be applied in many different ways and styles to design. In this article we are going to look further into four color scheme trends and discuss some inspiring examples which implement them highly effective.
One of the most popular ways to use vibrant colors in your design is a technique called monotone. Monotone palettes include a single color with a mixture of shades and tints. Monotone is fairly easy to create: Think about the color that best works with your message and consider the amount of variance you want between tones.
Monotone helps establish a solid foundation for foreground content, taking care of readability. Paired with dramatic typography, monotone color schemes are able to create a truly memorable experience.
