When designing for a magazine cover, the first design presented has a color scheme of blue, yellow, bright green, and red.
Client: (1) I don’t know, there’s something missing.
Client: (2) Yeah, it’s too “girly”.
Client: (1) Hey wait! Let’s add purple! Can you add purple to it?!
Clients: (2) Yes! It’s perfect! It definitely needed the purple.
Me: Should I take out one of the other colors so it isn’t rainbow?
Client: (1) No, no. It’s great the way it is. Thanks!
Client: (2) Glad we caught that fruity look before it got out of hand.
Client: (1) Totally.
Keep in mind that the cover was now blue, yellow, green, red, and purple. The only colour truly missing from the rainbow was orange.
