When you use a blue and orange color palette, you create a stunning and eye-catching color combination that certainly won’t go unnoticed!
Why do blue and orange work so well together? One reason these colors work really well together is because they are complementary colors, meaning that they are found opposite each other on the color wheel. Because they are opposite each other they create a dynamic and vibrant contrast to each other when you use them together on your website or in your designs.

This is another example of a color palette that contrasts cooler blue shades with bright orange and soft pastel yellow. It creates a cool and clean look and feels that is still bright and eye-catching!
