Studies have shown that contrasting color palette is the best way to grab a viewer's attention.
The analogous colors of Radioactive (#FAE500) are Mango Green (#92FA00) and Safety Orange (Blaze Orange) (#FA6800). In the RGB color wheel, these two analogous colors occur to the right and left of Radioactive 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 Radioactive (#FAE500) are #0092FA (Azure) and #6800FA (Electric Indigo). 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.
Radioactive triadic color palette has three colors each of which is separated by 120° in the RGB wheel. Thus, #00FAE5 (Turquoise Blue) and #E500FA (Phlox) along with #FAE500 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 Radioactive has four colors - #00FAE5 (Turquoise Blue), #0015FA (Blue) and #FA0015 (Vivid Red) in addition to the base color (#FAE500). 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.
Radioactive square color palette has #00FA68 (Guppie Green), #0015FA (Blue) and #FA0092 (Magenta (Process)). 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.
