  • Color in the total opposite of your typical style
  • Color according to an emotion
  • Use color excessively
  • Use color only for one single highlight
  • Use colour as a hierarchical aid


  • To see the effect of the colour selection in direct comparison.
  • To get clarity about which colour combinations work.
