I want to ask if it is okay to have different color between logo and mobile application theme color? The logo color is too bright for application theme color, so I choose the similar color but darker. It is okay too have different color with logo color or better change the logo color so it is compatible with the application color? Thanks
In addition to having a few color variations for a logo (black, white, color/multicolor, etc.), it's also common practice to have a few variations of the logo itself such as standalone icon, icon + wordmark lockup, standalone wordmark, etc. It would be hard to have one logo that works for all applications.
Think about Instagram, they have both the camera icon and the cursive wordmark, both highly used and highly recognizable as Instagram. They can be used separately or together (though very seldom) depending on the platform, medium, etc.
This case happened to me. The brand color used by the company where I work is too bright, and it is very complicated to use on a white background.
The options you have:
Darken the primary color of the UI (the color of the brand)
Use a secondary if the brand has it.
It is very important when making a brand to take colors that have good accessibility (are readable).
As long as the color has enough contrast, always use the brand, this will create identity.
