Make scientific schematics using Biorender. Tips from Biorender webinars on colour usage:

  1. Pick opposite colours on the colour wheel e.g. yellow and purple; orange and blue to make certain objects pop Try to avoid green and red for colour vision deficiencies
  2. Colour of text should match the colour of the object in text
  3. Gray scale to check if there’s enough contrast
  4. Warmer colours e.g. red for bad guys and cooler colours e.g. blue for good guys
  5. Use gridlines, to ensure enough negative space
