What blue does to orange

How to make a burst of vitamins even more attractive

Colour contrasts, such as the complementary pair blue-orange, intensify each other. Try it out yourself: Place an orange onto different coloured papers. On which of the colours does your vitamin explosion shine brightest? This little trick is often used in advertising, architecture and in cosmetics. With a little caution, please. Complementary colours often give the impression of extreme jolliness. So, should you be planning on wearing a blue shirt with orange dots, then look forward to many a surprised heading glance your way.
