There are various hues across us like blue, red, violet, yellow, green, etc each contributing towards the creation of perfect work environment in their own way.

Colour contrast does not always mean white and black only. It can be either red and blue or green and yellow. The colour scheme should be used in such a manner that the viewers can connect with the web page and can realize its significance in just one go. Besides this, always ensure that the same colours are not used in excessive amount.
