I am trying different color schemes for one of the designs that I posted earlier. As you can see, there are a few possibilities I could have gone with for the type by itself. However, when I added the illustration next to the type for it to be a complete combination mark, those same few don't work hand in hand.
I have come to the conclusion on a few things:
- Monochromatic as a color scheme does not interest me for the design at all. It also does not bring a strong presence, seeing there is contrast between the typefaces and the illustrations.
- While green is my favorite color, I am deciding to stay away from using it as part of the final color scheme. Already one of my classmates have mentioned about Starbucks, and I told her that being reminded of Starbucks because of green will not be satisfactory. So green will not be part of the final considerations.
- The blue and yellow color scheme (first row, second column on the first page) will not do. It reminds me too much of Burger King. Sad to say. Not to mention that most primary colors are used by fast food restaurants, just so that they can get your attention quickly. Indie Coffee & Books is not a fast food restaurant.
Any advice or suggestions are welcome. :)
