Chocolate CMYK values are (10, 70, 100, 10); meaning it is composed of 70 of magenta, 100 of yellow and 10 of both cyan and black. The closest hex code of the color is #CA6323 with RGB equivalent values (202, 99, 35). 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 chocolate CMYK depends on the quality of the paper, the printer and the inks in the machine.
Note: The hex code for chocolate CMYK mentioned on this page is only an approximation; it has been calculated from the CMYK values. Hexadecimal and RGB color values are for screen and digital media while the CMYK model is used for printing and, therefore, the conversion of one to another is not perfect. Also, the way chocolate looks on the screen (via the hex code) would be very different from how it appears printed on paper (via its CMYK values).
The complement of Chocolate CMYK is Cyan Cornflower Blue with the hex code #238ACA. Complementary colors are those found at the opposite ends of the color wheel. Thus, as per the RGB system, the best contrast to #CA6323 color is offered by #238ACA. 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 Chocolate CMYK (#CA6323) are American Gold (#CAB723) and Cardinal (#CA2337). In the RGB color wheel, these two analogous colors occur to the right and left of Chocolate 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 Chocolate CMYK (#CA6323) are #23CAB7 (Maximum Blue Green) and #2337CA (Persian Blue). 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.
Chocolate CMYK triadic color palette has three colors each of which is separated by 120° in the RGB wheel. Thus, #23CA63 (UFO Green) and #6323CA (Grape) along with #CA6323 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 Chocolate CMYK has four colors - #23CA63 (UFO Green), #238ACA (Cyan Cornflower Blue) and #CA238A (Royal Fuchsia) in addition to the base color (#CA6323). 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.
Chocolate CMYK square color palette has #37CA23 (Lime Green), #238ACA (Cyan Cornflower Blue) and #B723CA (Steel Pink). 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.
