If colors were on crack, this is what they would look like. The saturation is so crazy with all of these colors that it hurts your eyes to look at this playground! If they dulled the purple, and left the yellow bright, the simultaneousness would lesson and you could see the shapes more so than the contrast of their brightness. When complimentary colors, or even just two colors of the same value are placed right next to each other (in type) it strains your eyes. It’s important to have one dull value and one brighter value so it’s easier to read or see a shape.
