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.
