What are HEX, RGB, and HSL colors?

Colors are referred to in different categories. The purpose is to identify colors more technically.

1) HEX

HEX is a code consisting of six hexadecimal digits and is represented in the format of #000000. For example, the HEX for the following colors is as listed below:
Black: #000000
Red: #FF0000
Blue: #0000FF
Yellow: #FFFF00

2) RGB

RGB stands for "Red, Green, Blue" which consists of three numbers. Each of these numbers signifies the amount of red, green, and blue in a specific color. RGB is usually used in digital environments such as computers, monitors, and televisions. See the examples below:
Black: (0,0,0)
Red: (255,0,0)
Blue: (0,0,255)
Yellow: (255,255,0)

3) HSL

HSL stands for "Hue, Saturation, Lightness". Hue refers to the part of the light spectrum (0-360°), saturation to its intensity (0-1, 0-100°), and lightness to the brightness (0-1, 0-100%). See examples of HSL below:
Black: (0,0%,0%)
Red: (0,100%,50%)
Blue: (240,100%,50%)
Yellow: (60,100%,50%)

Colour theory

The "Colour Theory" refers to the collection of rules designers use to choose colors for an optimized visual user interface. Designers use the color wheel to select the best colors for any situation since colors have a strong psychological effect on how we perceive different things.

Why do restaurants use red and yellow?

Take a look at the logos above- did they make you hungry? It would come as no surprise if your mouth started drooling at the sight of a fast-food sign. Now take a closer look at the colors used in the logos. As you see, red is a staple that is accompanied by yellow. Perhaps you have already guessed that these two colors are not random; red and yellow are known to engage humans and cause excitement in them. Combining these bright colors can excite you, interest you, and finally, cause you to order lots of food. This is normal and is taken into consideration when designing fast-food logos and their interior design.

Why do hospitals use blue?

You have probably noticed that hospitals use blue for the interior, scrubs, sheets, and many other things, which is not random. The color blue is usually associated with cleanness, professionalism, trust, and calmness. Other than this, the change from white to blue or green made it a lot easier to get rid of bloodstains. Some also report that staring at other surgeons' white scrubs during surgery would cause a headache. All these resulted in the shift from white to blue and green.
