Geometric Color Blocking (or Splicing) is a trend in graphic design that incorporates geometric shapes, like triangles or hexagons, in bold color combinations. According to Bag’n-telle, there are four basic rules to color blocking:
- Three is the magic number.
- Keep colors in the same family (warm, cool, neutral). (As you’ll see, I flex this one quite a bit.)
- Be loud and proud.
- Keep it simple.
When choosing your colors, a color wheel can be very helpful. Start by choosing the main color you would like to use. Then, use one of the following color schemes to help you choose the other two colors. Remember, you can adjust the tint/shade of the color using your Color Picker tool.
