Day 032 of The 100 Day Project: #100fewertrumps

While it’s true that blue and orange are complementary colors, you can’t take a lovely, vibrant blue like this and throw on any tacky, old, unappealing orange you find lying around. Not every disgusting, unnatural shade of orange belongs there, because not every orange is fit for the job—in fact, I’m sure that you’ll all agree that some oranges are staggeringly unfit.

What I’m trying to emphasize here, class, is that color is critical facet of visual design, so perhaps we should start taking the selection of a given palette a little more seriously and stop slathering on the first disgusting shade of burnt baby-diarrhea that rears it’s ugly, ugly head.
