Jade CMYK is (80, 10, 80, 0); meaning it has 80 of both cyan and yellow, 10 of magenta and 0 of black. The closest hex code of the color is #21A567 with RGB equivalent values (33, 165, 103). 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 jade CMYK depends on the quality of the paper, the printer and the inks in the machine.
NOTE: The jade (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, jade color displayed on the screen through its hex code, may look very different when printed (by the CMYK values).
The complement of Jade CMYK is Amaranth Deep Purple with the hex code #A5215F. Complementary colors are those found at the opposite ends of the color wheel. Thus, as per the RGB system, the best contrast to #21A567 color is offered by #A5215F. 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 Jade CMYK (#21A567) are Light Sea Green (#21A1A5) and Slimy Green (#21A525). In the RGB color wheel, these two analogous colors occur to the right and left of Jade 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 Jade CMYK (#21A567) are #A521A1 (Byzantine) and #A52521 (Auburn). 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.
Jade CMYK triadic color palette has three colors each of which is separated by 120° in the RGB wheel. Thus, #6721A5 (Grape) and #A56721 (Dirty Brown) along with #21A567 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 Jade CMYK has four colors - #6721A5 (Grape), #A5215F (Amaranth Deep Purple) and #5FA521 (Green (RYB)) in addition to the base color (#21A567). 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.
Jade CMYK square color palette has #2521A5 (Blue (Pigment)), #A5215F (Amaranth Deep Purple) and #A1A521 (Citron). 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.
Jade CMYK Color Rainbow Palette
Our Jade 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.
