When choosing a color scheme - think of what a message you want to convey with your artwork, your target audience, the theme of your artwork, do you want to emphasise anything..... Think of how many colors do you need.

Below are some infographics for color choosing:





Open Adobe Illustrator.

Create 6 abstract designs (using geometric shapes) for each color scheme:

  • Use at least 6 shapes for each design.

  • Include the name of the scheme (use color wheel above for reference)
