How to find complementary colors

I often find myself trying to determine which colour is the “complementary” one of (or would nicely fit with) two colours imposed by the client brand. At times, only one colour is imposed, and I want to find two colours that would fit it.

Is there a quick and easy way to figure it out?


There is a wealth of tools out there. If you use Illustrator, it has a colour guide option (other SW might have similar options):
