Myndex Technologies Hue Contrast Chart

This color chart presents HUE CONTRASTS for our perception adjusted color wheel.
Color chips are perception adjusted for relative luminance.
Values used for each of the 12 chips are below.

Using the Chart

The chart is organized so there is a diagonal of "Highest Contrast Hues" from top left to bottom right.
This diagonal of hicon patches is marked by the contrast symbol.
There are also two parallel lines of lowest contrast, marked with the low contrast symbol.


The colors are arranged per a typical color wheel, from left to right starting with yellow, or from top to bottom starting with blue/violet (Hex #00F). Thus, horizontal starts at 60° on the left and vertical starts at 240° on the top.
The color codes have been rounded to their three digit hex values (magenta is #B0B), and while most colors are directly centered on their standard hue "angle" (such as purple at 270°), some colors in the green area have been intentionally shifted from their "hue centers" due to perception (see the companion article on perceptual color wheels).

Also, this chart emphasizes the two major color-opponent pairs: Red/Green and Yellow/Blue. Red/Green (and the close hues like Purple/Green) are the most aggressive opponent pairs, as they figure prominently in human edge detection (if you scroll the page up and down quickly, you'll see black lines form between red/green as they move).

Yellow/Blue is also a strong opponent pair, though the edge contrast is a little less, and it is more aesthetically pleasing (IKEA uses Yellow/Blue for their logo and branding).
