Reach harmony in your designs with a gentle light blue color scheme.

About the color

Light blue is a dreamy, romantic color made by mixing white and blue. The hex code for light blue is #ADD8E6. This is a shade of devotion, tenderness, and reliability. 

In Egypt, this color has symbolized nobility since ancient times. Egyptians believed that noble people had blue blood flowing through them. They painted their hands and feet in different shades of blue to represent nobility. Even varicose veins were considered an aristocratic disease because of their color.

Nowadays, the color meaning is very diverse. For example, in China, blue shades mean immortality. In Western Europe, blue is associated with progress, independence, patience, and trust. This is why many companies use a light blue color combination in their branded designs.

There’s a lot of symbolism behind this color, but “peace” is the most popular association when it comes to light blue. Get inspired by a variety of blue color combinations and create your aesthetic graphic design.

Application in design

Light blue is all about calmness and peace. A light blue color scheme evokes feelings of tranquility and harmony. That’s why it’s the perfect solution for babysitting flyers, healthcare brochures, psychologist business cards, and so on.

Light blue is also the color of tenderness and innocence. Design baby shower invitations, baby birth cards, and other visuals for cute occasions using a light blue color combination.

Blue promotes a sense of trustworthiness and reliability. So this color is suitable for various corporate designs such as logos, brochures, letterheads, and more.
