Orange-red is a warm shade of orange. It is also an intense shade of red. It can be obtained from a mixture of two colors. This was the first thing I thought of.
Orange is a color that I really like, but can’t seem to use that much on my products or branding.
This is because the color orange is really bold and bright, and often times too bold and bright for many clients. So why do I keep talking about orange if it can’t be used as often? Well, it’s simple: orange red is the prettiest version of this color!
Orange red combines the beautiful orange hue with the subtle warmness of a red color. This color combination makes it not as overpowering as regular orange which makes it great for layouts, buttons, menu colors and more.
If you’re looking for a beautiful orange color scheme, but want it to also have a little hint of red – this is the one for you.
When one says pale red, this is the color that comes to mind. It's considered a pastel variant of red where as all the other swatches of red are pure saturated colors. So if you're searching for a less intense red that offers clarity in your designs and mockups consider this color.
