Azure color in the CMYK model has the values (80, 50, 0, 0). Thus, there is 80 of cyan, 50 of magenta and 0 of both yellow and black. The closest hex code of the color is #3777BC with RGB equivalent values (55, 119, 188). The CMYK system is the backbone of the color printing technology found in both large industrial and small desktop printers. Colors are created using only four inks - cyan (C), magenta (M), yellow (Y) and black (K). Please understand that the reproducibility of azure CMYK depends on the quality of the paper, the printer and the inks in the machine.
NOTE: The azure (CMYK) hex color code mentioned on this page is just an approximation. It has been calculated from the CMYK values. As you probably know, the CMYK color model is for print media while hex codes and the equivalent RGB values are for screen. The two can seldom be converted correctly. Additionally, azure color displayed on the screen through its hex code, may look very different when printed (by the CMYK values).
The complement of Azure CMYK is Copper with the hex code #BC7C37. Complementary colors are those found at the opposite ends of the color wheel. Thus, as per the RGB system, the best contrast to #3777BC color is offered by #BC7C37. The complementary color palette is easiest to use and work with. Studies have shown that contrasting color palette is the best way to grab a viewer's attention.
The analogous colors of Azure CMYK (#3777BC) are Violet-Blue (#3A37BC) and Maximum Blue Green (#37BABC). In the RGB color wheel, these two analogous colors occur to the right and left of Azure CMYK with a 30° separation on either side. An analogous color palette is extremely soothing to the eyes and works wonders if your main color is soft or pastel.
As per the RGB color wheel, the split-complementary colors of Azure CMYK (#3777BC) are #BC3A37 (International Orange (Golden Gate Bridge)) and #BABC37 (Old Gold). A split-complementary color palette consists of the main color along with those on either side (30°) of the complementary color. Based on our research, usage of split-complementary palettes is on the rise online, especially in graphics and web sites designs. It may be because it is not as contrasting as the complementary color palette and, hence, results in a combination which is pleasant to the eyes.
Azure CMYK triadic color palette has three colors each of which is separated by 120° in the RGB wheel. Thus, #BC3777 (Medium Red-Violet) and #77BC37 (Green (RYB)) along with #3777BC create a stunning and beautiful triadic palette with the maximum variation in hue and, therefore, offering the best possible contrast when taken together.
The tetradic palette of Azure CMYK has four colors - #BC3777 (Medium Red-Violet), #BC7C37 (Copper) and #37BC7C (Medium Sea Green) in addition to the base color (#3777BC). A tetradic color palette is complex and, in most cases, should not be used off-the-shelf. We suggest tweaking the colors slightly to achieve desired results.
Azure CMYK square color palette has #BC37BA (Byzantine), #BC7C37 (Copper) and #37BC3A (American Green). Quite like triadic, the hues in a square palette are at the maximum distance from each other, which is 90°. Note: For several colors purposes, a square palette may look much better than the tetrad color palette.
Azure CMYK Color Rainbow Palette
Our Azure CMYK rainbow color palette is based on the RGB model and consists of 7 colors, just like the traditional rainbow. You might not see a lot of variation in color, especially if the chosen color is dark or extremely light. However, this can lead interesting rainbow palettes that are faded, soft, pastel or dull.
