Color Schemes

Color schemes are the combinations of colors that could be determined depending on where the color is placed in a color wheel.

These different combos of colors add visual aesthetics to the email templates. You can choose the color that aligns with the purpose of your email campaign.

Here are the primary color schemes that you can start using in our email templates;

  • Monochromatic

  • Achromatic

  • Triadic

  • Analogous

  • Cold Colors

  • Warm Colors

Now, let us have a look at how each of these creates a visual impact on your email.


In a monochromatic color scheme, you combine one primary color (hue) with its various tints and shades.

When you use the monochromatic color scheme, you can maintain uniformity in your email template. Besides this, it offers a soothing effect to the recipients.


In an achromatic scheme, you use the colors such as black, white, and grey. As the name itself hints that it is deprived of colors.

The combo of achromatic colors gives your email a professional look with its simplest form. 


A triadic color scheme combines three colors evenly spaced apart in the color wheel—for example, purple, green, and orange.

If you wish to use a triadic color scheme, you must select a dominant color and two secondary colors.


In an analogous color scheme, you will be using the combination of the colors placed next to each other in the color wheel—for instance, red, red-orange, orange.

You may prefer this color scheme in emails associated with natural phenomena or seasons, such as red, red-orange, and orange, for emails specific to the summer season.

Cold Colors

The cold color scheme comprises violet, blue-violet, blue, blue-green, green, and yellow-green colors.

This color scheme represents tranquility and calmness. 

If you look at these colors, you may associate them with natural occurrences such as the sky, oceans, and vegetables. Therefore, cold colors create a sense of abundance among the viewers.

Mostly, the companies that are connected with trust and hope use cold colors. Next time when you plan to launch a survey campaign, you may use cold colors.

Warm Colors

Warm colors include red-violet, red, red-orange, orange, orange-yellow, and yellow colors.

Warm colors are generally associated with the energy or warmth of nature. 

You can see the brands using this color when they want to convey notes about urgency and optimism.

Therefore, next time you are giving an offer, you may use warm colors to communicate the message and entice the audience to take immediate action.

Final Thoughts

As seen in the article, when you combine colors, you can bring out many expressions. Many a time, certain color combos are easily relatable to the brands and the ideas they convey and resonate with the taste of the audiences.

You can pick the color that matches a particular emotion or festivity or the color pattern of your brand.
