While black and white is a classic look, adding a bit or even a splash of red can bring everything to life.

Here are some beautifully designed works I’ve found on the net over the years that use these colors to great effect:
Mateo & Bernabé packaging by Moruba
Black Swan poster designed by La Boca
Packaging for a women’s hair salon by Peter Gregson.
Bao Bei menu by Glasfurd & Walker
The Arrogant Butcher signage by TunnelBravo
Three colors make for a striking combination. I hope to be able to use it in future design projects.
