I'm currently designing a CRM which includes a lot of forms and modules. I have been struggling to decide the colour rule for the buttons especially having to incorporate branding colour into the palette.
Context: Form to register New Student
Usage: Main button
Example: 'Submit' button to submit the form
Issue: Blue seems more natural colour for the main button and links so I select it as the main button
Teal (Brand colour)
Usage: Secondary button
Example: 'Upload student image' & 'Add Subject' button
Issue: Since blue stands out more than teal I have selected teal as the secondary button, but the secondary button appears more often than the main button.
- Usage: to pair with the main button
- Example: 'Save as draft' button
How do I create a rule as to when to use the colours or is it better to just use 2 colours(teal and white)? However, there are many buttons and links in the CRM, so I feel that having 3 colours can help distinguish them better. What are your thoughts?
