Color Charts: 50 Coloring Charts to Organize Your Color Schemes, Test Your Supplies Before You 11

While text-based content is always important when seeking answers to a question, creating visuals such as infographics, charts, graphs, animated GIFs, and other shareable images can do wonders for catching your readers' attention and enhancing your article or report. Knowing color theory and design can help you make content stand out.

Color theory is the basis for the primary rules and guidelines that surround color and its use in creating aesthetically pleasing visuals. By understanding color theory basics, you can begin to parse the logical structure of color for yourself to create and use color palettes more strategically. The result means evoking a particular emotion, vibe, or aesthetic.

From effective CTAs to sales conversions and marketing efforts, the right color choice can highlight specific sections of your website, make it easier for users to navigate, or give them a sense of familiarity from the first moment they click through.

Think of primary colors as your parent colors, anchoring your design in a general color scheme. Any one or combination of these colors can give your brand guardrails when you move to explore other shades, tones, and tints (we'll talk about those in just a minute).

When you're creating color on a computer, your color module will usually list both RGB and CMYK numbers. In practice, you can use either one to find colors, and the other color model will adjust accordingly.

However, many web programs will only give you the RGB values or a HEX code (the code assigned to color for CSS and HTML). So, if you're designing digital images or for web design, RGB is probably your best bet for choosing colors.

Monochromatic color schemes use a single color with varying shades and tints to produce a consistent look and feel. Although it lacks color contrast, it often ends up looking very clean and polished. It also allows you to easily change the darkness and lightness of your colors.

It's best to use one color predominantly and use the second color as accents in your design. The complementary color scheme is also great for charts and graphs. High contrast helps you highlight important points and takeaways.

Triad color schemes are useful for creating high contrast between each color in a design, but they can also seem overpowering if all of your colors are chosen on the same point in a line around the color wheel.

No matter which color scheme you choose, keep in mind what your graphic needs. If you need to create contrast, then choose a color scheme that gives you that. On the other hand, if you just need to find the best "versions" of certain colors, then play around with the monochromatic color scheme to find the perfect shades and tints.

This is because the way in which we use two colors together changes how we perceive it. So, when you're choosing colors for your graphic designs, think about how much contrast you want throughout the design.

If you switch your main color, the color guide will switch the corresponding colors in that scheme. So if you've chosen a complementary color scheme with the main color of blue, once you switch your main color to red, the complementary color will also switch from orange to green.

If you're not an Adobe user, you've probably used Microsoft Office products at least once. All of the Office products have preset colors that you can use and play around with to create color schemes. PowerPoint also has a number of color scheme presets that you can use to draw inspiration for your designs.

Where the color schemes are located in PowerPoint will depend on which version you use, but once you find the color "themes" of your document, you can open up the preferences and locate the RGB and HEX codes for the colors used.

I love this! I have done this with other mediums, like pencils and some acrylics. I have not gone in depth like this though. When doing your charts and you were mixing the two colors together are you using a specific ratio.

Dan,Thanks for sharing this. A couple of questions. Does this mean that you paint (in your paintings) only using mixes of any two colors plus tinting with white? Are there not times that you would need to paint with mixtures or three or more colors in a mix? Or can you achieve any color you need using only two colors plus white (and does that help to eliminate making mud?

I think its useful to write down the pigment numbers that are shown on the paint tubes, especially for watercolor charts. Also, I thinks its easier just to blur the mixes at the edges to eliminate the taping. You get one big sheet of color gradations, like on your computer.

Hello, Dan- this was so helpful! My friend and I have been painting our charts together. We eyeball the paint values for each other before putting them on the charts. Did you ever finish yours? Sometimes with a dominant color like cad red, our whole chart looks very similar- I wonder if the secondary color should have been increased to create more differences in the colors? Thanks for publishing this, it got us started and was a great help!

Choose 3-10 different colors. These can be your logo color(s), or colors from your website (you can use or install a color picker to get their hex codes). If you still have too few colors, play around with extra colors until you get some that fit well with the ones you already have.

Create them with a tool like the Tint and Shade Generator. If you want equally spaced lightness differences between your shades no matter the color, use a tool like the Interactive color picker comparison and increase or decrease the Lr value in equal steps (e.g., 15).

When you go darker, try to increase the saturation of your colors. You might even need to shift the hue a little bit to make them work. When you go lighter, consider decreasing the saturation.

To increase the chances that your charts will look coherent even with a big color palette, define an order to your colors. If a chart only uses one color, which one should that be? How about two colors? Three? Four?

Which is ok! We give higher-saturated elements more attention, so it depends on how much of that you want your visualizations to get. Are the visualizations in your publications essential? Or are you posting your visualizations a lot on social media, where you want them to get some eyeballs? Then choose higher-contrast, higher-saturation colors.

If your visualizations are supposed to work on the web or in presentations, keep in mind that not everybody will see the colors on a shiny new screen like you do. People might have old monitors, need to present with bad projector settings, or use browser extensions like High Contrast. (More than 600,000 people use that one.) (Maybe one of your readers does too.) All of this could lead to bright colors being brighter and dark colors being darker. Which brings us to:

Ensuring that your colors are colorblind-friendly is fairly easy. There are lots of tools out there to test that. A start in the wonderful world of making colorblind-friendly visualizations can be our article, What to consider when visualizing data for colorblind readers.

If you have a Datawrapper custom theme, you can tell us which new colors should replace which old ones (e.g. to replace a green with a green and a blue with a blue) and give us a list of visualizations that we should republish to make the new colors appear in your embedded visualizations.

You can use your fresh knowledge on lightness, saturation, and hue to analyze the colors you got from the audit. Get a feeling for them. How bright are they? What would a more or less saturated version of each color look like?

In Power BI Desktop, you can apply design changes to your entire report, such as using corporate colors, changing icon sets, or applying new default visual formatting. When you apply a report theme, all visuals in your report use the colors and formatting from your selected theme. To learn more, see Use report themes

There are certain circumstances where Power BI will change the legend (and data) colors. One example is when your visual is created using streaming data, a new month begins, and a new category is introduced into your visual. Let's say that you've set the data colors for all five categories in the line chart above. And now it's Jan-13 and another manufacturer has entered the market. Because you did not set a data color for that new manufacturer, you may find that Power BI has changed the data colors for the original five manufacturers. When a new category is introduced, you may have to reassign data colors to the new and existing categories using the Formatting > Data colors pane.

The view automatically updates to a filled map, and colors each state based on its total sales. Because you're exploring product sales, you want your sales to appear in USD. Click the Sum(Sales) field on the Columns shelf, and select Format. For Numbers, select Currency.

In ggplot2, colors that are assigned to variables are modified via the scale_color_* and the scale_fill_* functions. In order to use color with your data, most importantly you need to know if you are dealing with a categorical or continuous variable. The color palette should be chosen depending on type of the variable, with sequential or diverging color palettes being used for continuous variables and qualitative color palettes for categorical variables: 350c69d7ab
